How to append something to the END of a containing div?

I'm creating a div in jQuery, and I want to append it to the bottom of a div containing 3 other divs. I've tried:

var $button = $('<div type="button">Le Button</div>');

And also:

var $button = $('<div type="button">Le Button</div>').appendTo($containingDiv);

And both of these work. But the button div I append always appears at the TOP of the list, not at the END. It is important the button appears at the end, because the elements in the containing div are generated by AJAX. So, moving the button around with CSS positioning will not work.

Thanks ~Jay
