  • The biggest surrender of the civil war took place here. The site has a few historic buildings (not the original farmhouses, though) and a visitor's center. Great place to spend an hour or so if you are in Durham (or to take guests/visitor's). I'm not sure they have tours every day. I've been there without seeing a tour guide, but have also been toured around a couple times.
  • An interesting, but relatively unknown Civil War site
  • What a history to know!! They even let you inside to see the rooms on certain times.
  • Why are they selling the confederate flag here in 2015 and sympathizing with the confederates as a "gentleman's war." Interesting that a museum about the civil war doesn't mention or highlight the big S word - SLAVERY.
  • Must-see spot for those interested in the American Civil War. Visit the museum. Not as impressive as Appomattox but worth the visit.
