JUST THE FACTS: APPOMATTOX COURTHOUSE

APPOMATTOX - WITH MALICE TOWARD NONE

FEATURING gripping large scale re-enactments, dynamic educational 3D tactical map animations, beautiful motion graphics, and meticulous historical research - Appomattox: With Malice Towards None provides an unforgettable experience that will transport you back to one of the most pivotal moments in American history.

AT ONE O'CLOCK on April 9, 1865, General Robert E. Lee rode into the small town of Appomattox Court House, dismounted, and entered the McLean House. General Grant, surrounded by generals and staff officers, soon followed. The two supreme leaders of the epic Civil War were about to bring four years of bloody fighting to an end. Dozens of officers, horses, and onlookers waited outside - the mood was somber and filled with anticipation. After 90 minutes, Lee and Grant emerged. To the silent salutes of Union officers, Lee rode back through the village - to his defeated army.

The home that hosted the meeting became a sensation after the surrender. It also became a potent symbol - for it was at this iconic location that Lee and Grant set the stage for a process of peace and reunion - so that the healing could begin - and that first step was taken here, at Appomattox.

JUST THE FACTS: LINCOLN

Abraham Lincoln worked his way up from humble beginnings to become the 16th President of the United States. He served in the White House in the midst of a national crisis.

A flexible man of thought and a master of words, he is best known for signing the Emancipation Proclamation and writing the Gettysburg Address. For all his deeds and efforts in freeing the slaves and preserving the Union, Abraham Lincoln became the heroic martyr of the Civil War.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN came of age while living and working as a private citizen in Springfield, Illinois.

Lincoln was a man who experienced the same hopes, dreams, and challenges of life still experienced by people today.

Through the use of remarkable storytelling and top-tier historical recreations, A Journey to Greatness brings history to life and captures the portrait of a humble man who was destined for greatness.

Join Lincoln on his dramatic journey and learn about his formative years in Springfield, Illinois. Lincoln arrived in Springfield alone, with no money, not even a place to stay - but when he left Springfield twenty-four years later, he was headed for the White House, and the pages of history.
