The Battle of Appomattox Station was an engagement which took place during the American Civil War. General George Armstrong Custer’s division captured a supply train and twenty-five guns, driving off and scattering the Confederate defenders. This unique action pitted artillery without infantry support against cavalry. Custer captured and burned three trains loaded with provisions for Lee’s army. (NPS summary)
