Product Description
The Civil War ended in a small Virginia town called Appomattox Court House after a minor skirmish. This PowerPoint features this small town where the surrender occurred. The author uses her photographs to take you to the McLean House and the actual room where Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant signed surrender papers. The terms of the surrender are listed. There are several slides which show the "Silent Witness" to the surrender. A suggested book is The Silent Witness by Robin Friedman which tells how McLean's daughter's doll was in the room at the time of the surrender and was then taken as a souvenir of the surrender by a Northern soldier and finally returned to the site 128 years later.You will see the rest of the house and the outbuildings which include the detached kitchen, a slave cabin, and an ice house. You will also view Clover Hill Tavern and see where Southern soldiers received their parole passes which were printed there that allowed them to return home. There are pictures of the printing presses and actual parole passes. Finally, there are pictures of the Appomattox Confederate Cemetery. This presentation is easily adapted to many grade levels.
