This is one of the major historical events in the American history since it put an end to a bloody Civil War, which claimed the lives of thousands of people.

At Appomattox, Virginia Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered his 28,000 troops to Union General Ulysses S. Grant. Made to leave the Confederate capital of Richmond, blocked from joining the remaining Confederate force in North Carolina, and harassed constantly by Union cavalry, Lee had no opportunity to continue the struggle.

Have you remembered the date of this significant historical event? Or was it a good guess?
