The road the Confederate troops took to the surrender point at McLean House took them along this route and past the house where CS Gen. Lee surrendered to US Gen. Grant on April 9, 1865. Although many believe it is the last surrender, the later surrender of CS General Johnston to US General Sherman was far more important. Lee’s surrender at Appomattox triggered a wave of other surrenders throughout the South.
