Pamplin Historical ParkWelcome to the Banks House. This 18th-century home was typical of other upper-middle class farms in Dinwiddie County, except for 24 hours on April 2-3, 1865 when it became military headquarters for Lieutenant General Ulysses S. Grant. From here, General Grant presided over the climax of the Petersburg Campaign and rode into Petersburg to meet with President Lincoln for the final time.
