Featured in Southern Living May 2012 enitled; "Virginia: At Heart the of History." Midway between Petersburg and Appomattox Court House, you'll want to stop by Sailor's Creek Battlefield Historical State Park, which commemorates the "Black Thursday of the Confederacy." Gen. Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia lost 7,700 men, including eight generals in the battle - a defeat that was key to his decision to surrender at Appomattox Court House, thus ending the war in Virginia. In March 0f 2012 a new visitor center will open at the park, which will include a bookstore, research library and multimedia museum featuring artifacts and interactive displays. Confederate and Union soldiers wounded in the battle were taken to a field hospital set up at Overton-Hillsman House. It's open to visitors June through August and by request at other times. Period costumed interpreters commemorate the event and conduct other living history events throughout the year. Motorists will enjoy the scenic winding roads of Lee's Retreat Driving Tour, which follows the route of his army from Petersburg to Appomattox Court House. While on the trail, drivers can set their radios to AM 1610 for battle details and descriptions.
