Major General, CSA. Gen. Grimes led a distinguished career in the Army of Northern Virginia. He was the last Maj. General. appointed to that Army, and he led the last Confederate attack at Appomattox on the morning of April 9, 1865, just before the surrender. He was murdered from ambush by a hired assassin named William Parker. Gen. Grimes has an elaborate monument in Trinity Churchyard Cemetery, near Chocowinity, North Carolina, but he is not buried there. He is actually buried in the family cemetery on his plantation of "Grimesland," about five miles northwest of the Trinity cemetery. The Grimes family cemetery is back in the woods behind the plantation house, and all of this land is private property. Both the Trinity cemetery and "Grimesland" are located on N.C. Hwy. 33.
