The McLean house at Appomattox is where CS Gen Lee surrendered his remaining troops to Gen US Grant on April 9, 1865. The two generals met, signed a few documents, and then Gen Grant graciously gave the Confederate troops the freedom to take their weapons home if they promised to not take up arms against the United States.
