Best Answer

The Civil War ended on April 9th, 1865. This is the day that Robert E. Lee surrendered his troops to Ulysses Grant at the Appomattox court house, located in Virginia. However, fighting continued until May 9th, 1865, since it took awhile for all the fighting troops to be contacted about the ending of the war.
