Final Blow

— Lee's Retreat —

You are standing where Gen. James Longstreet's corps entrenched early in the morning of April 9, 1865, to protect the rear of the Army of Northern Virginia. Gen. Robert E. Lee and most of the army bivouacked about four miles south, just short of Appomattox Court House, the county seat. Here, looking down the Confederate picket line, you can see remnants of Longstreet's earthworks, the last built in the field by the army that had become renowned for its quick and effective construction.
