The Hannah Reynolds Story

  • American Civil War Museum - Appomattox 159 Horseshoe Road Appomattox, VA, 24522 United States (map)

The Hannah Reynolds Story follows the last days of Hannah Reynolds, a former slave who became the only civilian casualty in the Final Battle of Appomattox Court House. Hannah was still enslaved when she was shot on the morning on April 9, 1865 prior to the famous signing of the surrender but died a free woman on April 12, the same day the Confederate Army stacked their arms. Wolfbane is honored to be working with the American Civil War Museum to bring the story of this courageous woman to life. This year is very special, because the anniversary falls on Palm Sunday, just as it did in 1865. We will be telling Hannah’s story at the same time of year that the true events happened, but 152 years later!
