Lee's Retreat Driving Tour
Lee's Retreat Tour Guide Information
The Lee's Retreat driving tour follows the course of that critical action on roads that were used April 2–9, 1865. Short-range radio messages at more than 25 waysides along the way explain the activity. Tune your radio to AM1620 (near Appomattox, AM1600) to hear the messages. You must stop at the waysides to listen. The signal does not reach much beyond them. See also Scripts.

Civil War Trails interpretive markers now enhance the radio stops with battle maps, photographs and additional description of the sites. Find the signs at Sutherland, Namozine Church, Amelia Springs, Lockett House, Rice's Depot, Cavalry at High Bridge, Farmville, Cumberland Church, High Bridge, Lee's Rearguard and Burkeville.
