Appomattox County History
Appomattox County was formed in 1845 from Buckingham, Prince Edward, Campbell and Charlotte Counties. In 1848, another part of Campbell county was added. It was named for the Appomattox River. On April 9, 1865, Confederate General Robert E Lee met with Union General Ulysses S Grant at Appomattox Court House. The surrender of Lee took place at the McLean House, home of Wilmer McLean.
