American Civil War Museum-Appomattox will also be premiering a brand new exhibit starting April 6, 2018 in partnership with Lynchburg College called “Local Stories, National Struggle.” Appomattox Court House National Historical Park has a full itinerary of commemoration activities including speakers, living history, and live reenactments.

Mark your calendars, Wolfbane’s Romeo and Juliet, an original adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic tale set during the Civil War, will return to the National Park this June.
