This month marks the 154th anniversary of the surrender of Gen. Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox. On April 9, 1965, The (Lynchburg) News and The Daily Advance covered the surrender's centennial observance, an event that drew thousands of people. Some of the photos in this collection appeared in the papers the next day. Many of the pictures were never published. If you recognize somebody in the photos, please share in the comments.
