After the battles of Appomattox Station on April 8, 1865, and Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865, General Lee met General Grant at the home of Wilmer McLean and surrendered the Army of Northern Virginia--signaling the beginning of the end of the Civil War. Surrender ceremony events took place over the next three days, ending with the Confederate infantry stacking their arms on April 12.
