On The Cover The surrender by General Lee to General Grant at the McLean House is paramount in the identity of Appomattox. The LOVE sign, in current downtown Appomattox, is composed of references to this and other parts of our heritage: historical buildings, the recreational opportunities at three state parks, the contribution of the railroad to our history, the “Power of One” rallying cry of our sports teams and disaster recovery efforts, and Joel Sweeney — the inventor and popularizer of the five-string banjo.

welcome Welcome to the town and county of Appomattox. There are few places in this world more beautiful than Virginia — and Appomattox is located in its heart. Whether you are visiting our area, looking to invest or relocate or residing here permanently, you will find that it is a wonderful area — with great people and offering the serenity of small town or rural life while providing ready access to varied cultural, educational, recreational and commercial activities. With this issue of “Appomattox — Where Our Nation Reunited” we outline things to do and see while in the area, and provide reference to products, services, events and venues to enjoy. Immerse yourself in history, enjoy local theater, cuisine and recreation. Shop for antiques and that special item that may be a hidden treasure to take home. Appomattox is, of course, most widely known as being the location of the surrender of forces under command of General Robert E. Lee to General Ulysses S. Grant, thus signaling the end to four years of bloody confrontation between the North and South. Learn more about this event and life at that time at the National Historical Park, the American Civil War Museum and Clover Hill Village. And, there is more history to discover at other local and nearby venues — museums maintained by the Appomattox County Historical Society and the Carver Price Legacy alumni group, Patrick Henry’s Red Hill, Thomas Jefferson’s Poplar Forest and the National D-Day Memorial, just to name a few. Learn about (and attend) events that merge our history with fine theater. In or near Appomattox, there are three state parks that offer varied recreational opportunities. Our 18-hole golf course is traditionally the best maintained layout in the area. And, wherever you go or whatever you do, interact with our people. Given a chance, they will make you feel at home. John Redding, President Appomattox County Chamber of Commerce

Our Place In History Take a Glimpse into Appomattox County’s Past

A

ancestors were here before the Civil War live here still, owning businesses or farms. Appomattox folks can still relate family histories three or more generations back of their relatives who may have volunteered for one of the several companies formed in the county, including the Appomattox Invincibles which became Company A of the 44th Regiment of the Virginia Infantry. Prior to 1845, Clover Hill consisted of a tavern built in 1819 with a separate kitchen building, guest quarters, a smokehouse and

21st century traveler gazing eastward from atop a high point in what was Appomattox Court House can easily imagine our rural county as it was in the early 1800s. Automobiles have replaced horse-drawn carriages and blacktop covers what was formerly a narrow, often muddy and uneven road. The very important Richmond – Lynchburg Stage Road is still a major east to west thoroughfare and ribbons over the scenic rolling land of Appomattox County. Formerly named Clover Hill and preserved by the National Park Service, the tiny village has changed little since the mid-nineteenth century. Undergoing many political and economic changes, the population of the county has not risen appreciably, and the area is still mostly rural as old tin roofed barns and farmhouses hide among the growth of forest in the peaceful landscape. Still called the “Surrender Grounds,” by many locals, the restored village is where General Robert E. Lee surrendered his Army to General Ulysses S. Grant in what was the “beginning of the end” of the Civil War. Families whose

barns near the headwaters of the Appomattox River. The brick used to make the buildings has withstood the test of time having been formed and molded out of the heavy red clay soil behind the former kitchen. By 1819, stagecoaches with mail and other goods ran six days a week. Travel by horse-drawn transportation to Prince Edward County for court days and business grew time-consuming for the growing population, and the tavern’s important role as a respite for weary drivers, horses and their customers helped to establish the need to petition the Virginia legislature to create a new county with its own courthouse. Created with acreage from its four surrounding counties — Buckingham, Campbell, Prince Edward and Charlotte, Clover Hill was renamed Appomattox Court House in 1845, using the name of the river or perhaps a form of the name of the local Indian tribe called Appamattuck. As plans were being made to construct a jail and two other log houses in what was to become the new county seat, Clover Hill property owner Hugh Raine saw an opportunity in the growing town. In May 1845, he sold the property, now divided into 40 one-half to four acre lots, to Samuel McDearmon. McDearmon advertised it as “one of the handsomest locations in Virginia, in the midst of a fine and healthy country, noted for its intelligence and moral standing, on the great thoroughfare between Lynchburg and Richmond and Farmville, and within a few miles of the James River Canal, for a long series of years free from the visitation of fevers and other

malignant diseases, which have ravaged other sections of the country.” Unfortunately, Raine, McDearmon and other citizens had trouble selling their land. Thousands of Virginians in the mid-1840s were moving west to Missouri and Texas. The country was on the verge of industrialization, and corn, wheat and tobacco were more inexpensively grown and transported from further south. A long known way of life was slowly changing. In 1860 just prior to the Civil War, the county was populated by 4,118 whites and 4,700 blacks, of which 171 were freed, working as tradesmen such as blacksmiths, coopers, wheel rights, farmers or laborers. Most of the local black population was born into slavery, their status changing only by the outcome of the War. They were considered as personal property of their owners, their value taxed as part of the “personal estate.” According to accounts of Appomattox slaves, their biggest fear was to be sold to plantation owners in the deep South to pick cotton as times became tough for their Virginia owners. This business decision broke up families with young children. Paid white laborers in the county in 1860 earned, with board, $10/month, their daily wage 50 cents. The census that year showed only one convicted criminal in the county, up from zero the previous year! Agriculture continued to dominate the economy although industrial outlets like grain and lumber mills and a few machine shops for farm implements were necessary, began rising in number from 17 in 1860 to 53 in 1870. One of the most influential changes to our country’s history and Appomattox was the building of the railroads. Crisscrossing in every direction and powered by coal and steam the railroad made travel and shipping of commercial

goods much more efficient and reliable. By 1854, the South Side Railroad, which began at City Point on the James River, extended west for 132 miles through Petersburg through Appomattox Depot, three miles west of the county seat, and on to Lynchburg. The ease and reliability of the railroad soon replaced the stagecoach as the main method of travel as the population began shifting west from the village. The railroad also played an important role in the outcome of the Civil War, transporting both Union and Confederate troops, and supplying both armies with food, supplies and forage for their mules and horses. For General Robert E. Lee, his dependence on the railroad

to deliver much needed supplies for his hungry Army of Northern Virginia forced him to move west, rather than south as he was blocked by the Union Army at every turn. His final failed attempt to reach Appomattox Station (present day Appomattox), was thwarted when General George Custer captured much needed supplies following the Battles of Appomattox Station and Appomattox Court House. Lee felt surrender was his only option and met with General Grant on April 9 in the private home of Wilmer McLean in Appomattox Court House.” n By Barbara Luna

American Civil War Museum A Look Into The Past Museum Tells Story of Yesteryear

The American Civil War Museum at Appomattox showcases artifacts, photographs and documents from one of the world’s most comprehensive collections related to the Confederate States of America. Of special interest are General Robert E. Lee’s sword and the frock coat he wore at the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia to General Ulysses S. Grant. Museum visitors get a glimpse of what life was like for people in Appomattox during the Civil War. Tours provide a chance to walk in the footsteps of those who took part in events, which

Wolfbane, which started in 2008, has another production connecting history and the arts. “The Hannah Reynolds Story” depicts the last days of Hannah Reynolds, who was an enslaved resident of Appomattox and the only civilian casualty in the April 1865 fighting that took place there. The play is also staged on the park grounds. “Wolfbane is honored to have partnered with the Appomattox Court House National Historical Park and American Civil War Museum-Appomattox to bring the story of this courageous woman park in their own community where they can to life,” Arpino said. have their own experiences in history, the arts and Snyder likes how Wolfbane has told the recreation,” Snyder said. “We want to have our stories of Appomattox residents.

istory and theater are working together in Appomattox to attract more visitors to the community and to engage more with current residents. It’s a partnership chiefly between the Appomattox Court House National Historical Park, site of the McLean House where Lee surrendered to Grant in April 1865, and Wolfbane Productions, a theater company based in Appomattox and New York City. The beneficiaries of this weaving together of factual events and the stage are many: the visitors who come to Appomattox, the businesses and the community as a whole who gain a deeper understanding of history. “The Wolfbane staff members are not only theater nerds but history buffs as well. We also have a lot of hometown pride, so it only seemed natural to venture into a way of storytelling that combined both passions,” said Ken Arpino, Wolfbane’s executive director and an actor in many of the company’s productions. “It has made the process of developing new shows very enjoyable for us, while at the same time, it connects our audience to the stories. As an added benefit, we hope to connect residents to the community.” Robin Snyder, superintendent of the historical park, said Wolfbane approached the park in 2016 about doing a play that would use the buildings and cultural landscape as a setting. The 1865 Foundation later joined the talks, and, from this, more discussions centered on producing Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” with a Civil War twist. “They understood we needed to see some sort of connection to the resource,” said Snyder, who liked the idea of bringing live theater to the park but was also sensitive to the type of production. “Wolfbane’s Romeo and Juliet” is set in the village of Appomattox during the war years of 1861-65. Dustin Williams, who grew up in Appomattox, founded Wolfbane and is the artistic director, said the adaption gives many of Shakespeare’s characters last names of people who were prominent in the area at that time. The play adds some historical characters who lived in Appomattox during the Civil War. Using local and New York City actors and

Opportunity exists for additional retail offerings to profit from this regular traffic.

Although manufacturing and industrial activity are currently somewhat lacking within the confines of the county, the potential for them to flourish exists. Sites are readily available for development in the county-owned industrial park and the privately owned vacated, former Thomasville Furniture Plant, as well as throughout the undeveloped rural areas of the community. Residents who are employed in such positions readily commute to the Lynchburg and Farmville areas. The potential to provide skilled and educated labor is also present. The Appomattox school system, consisting of four fully accredited public schools plus two excellent religious-based private schools, is second to none in the area. The community is served directly by a satellite operation of the regional community college and is also surrounded by a half-dozen highly recognized institutions of higher learning and well-regarded vocational training facilities. In addition to the tangible assets of the community, Appomattox is a place where people care for one another. It is evident in local churches, civic organizations and on the streets every day. There is a pride in and a following of local youth and an involvement in them becoming better citizens while enjoying their athletic achievements. When disaster strikes, there is never a shortage of people stepping forward to lend a hand. It is as if the spirit of unification initiated in 1865 is latent in the town’s modernday psyche. n
