Best Answer

Appomattox Court House

AnswerThat is in Virginia. BTW, many towns in that area of Virginia had a name ending in "Court House". This was the site where General Robert Lee surrendered on April 9, 1865. Other units were still fighting in other places.

General Joseph Johnston surrendered his army two weeks after General Lee, on April 26, 1865. Gen. Johnston was able to catch a portion of Sherman's army by surprise at the Battle of Bentonville, March 19, 1865. He was forced to retreat. After learning of Lee's surrender, Gen. Johnston surrendered his army to Sherman at the Bennett Place near Durham, North Carolina, despite orders to the contrary from Jefferson Davis.

The Battle of Fort Blakely took place from April 2-April 9, 1865 in Baldwin County, Alabama, as part of the Mobile Campaign. This was same day that General Lee surrendered.

The Battle of Palmito Ranch, outside Brownsville, TX, was fought on May 12 - May 13, 1865. There were 118 Union casualties and the Confederate casualties were "a few dozen" wounded, none killed. Texas armies formally surrendered on May 26, 1865, when Confederate General Kirby Smith surrendered his Trans-Mississippi Department. On June 2, he fled to Galveston, TX, into Mexico and on to Cuba.

Another late surrender that was quite insignificant ---

The CSS Shenandoah was an iron-framed, teak-planked, full-rigged vessel with auxiliary steam power, under Captain James Waddell, CSN. The Shenandoah fired the last shot of the American Civil War, in waters off the Aleutian Islands. Waddell headed north past the Aleutian Islands into the Bering Sea and the Arctic Ocean. On June 23,1865 he learned from a prize of General Robert Lee's surrender 10 weeks previously. Nevertheless, he elected to continue hostilities, and captured 21 more prizes. Finally, Waddell brought the Shenandoah into Liverpool, England, on November 6, 1865, and surrendered her to British authorities.
