Battle of Appomattox Court House
By Mary Lynn Bushong

1     At the beginning of April, one of the last remaining vestiges of the Confederacy was Robert E. Lee and his small army. General Grant forced them out of Petersburg and Richmond on April 2.
2     The Union army entered the two cities, looting and burning as they went. Two days later, the newly re-elected President Lincoln entered the Confederate White House.
3     Lee marched the remainder of his army south. The plan was to make their way to Danville, North Carolina and meet up with General Johnston's army. There they had planned to make a final stand together.
