Tour: The End of the Civil War in Virginia

Sunday, May 17, 2009: Last Day of Our Last Tour
Civil War Field Trips, NVCC

Dr. Poland gave each of us a hand-drawn map showing the itinerary for our Petersburg to Appomattox tour. If you have the luxury of time, you might want to allow two days for this tour. You could easily spend most of a day at Pamplin Historical Park, with its entertaining museums and reconstructed forts. For that matter, you might want to spend an entire day exploring Appomattox.
  1. Pamplin Park, Petersburg, VA
  2. White Oak Road
  3. Five Forks
  4. Sailors Creek (3 stops, following a long drive on 460 and 617)
  5. Marshall's Crossroads
  6. High Bridge (near Farmville, VA)
  7. Appomattox, VA
