Civil War group buys Appomattox battlefield site





The Civil War preservation trust has raised $65,000 and has used that money to recently purchase the Appomattox Station Battlefield property.

The purchase of 47 acres of property will secure the preservation of the land where once Civil War skirmishes took place in April 1865.

The Appomattox Station Battlefield land is located on the Jamerson Trucking Property.

Preserving the property is a key step in telling the full story of the final days of the Civil War.

The Appomattox Station battlefield is historically significant. The events that occurred on April 8, 1865 led to Gen. Robert E. Lee's decision to surrender the next day effectively ending the Civil War.

The preserved property will be eventually used to create tourism opportunities....
