Sailor's Creek Battlefield State Park Description

On April 6, 1865, nearly a quarter of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee's army, more than 7,700 men, were killed, wounded or captured here. Lee surrendered 72 hours later at Appomattox Court House. Staff historians present various programs and living history events take place at various times throughout the year. Motorists traveling along Lee's Retreat may learn more about the battle through signs at each stop. Also, a free tour of the Overton-Hillsman House, which served as a hospital during and after the battle, may be arranged.
