McLean House, Appomattox Court House National Historic Park, Appomattox, VA

Ally and I visited Appomattox today. We had a lovely lunch at the Babcock House then visited the National Park. Wonderful visual map in the visitor’s center of the final Civil War battles leading to the surrender negotiated in the McLean House. So odd the surrender took place in a regular parlor in a regular house. We went to the Museum of the Confederacy, too. I am not sure I am OK with that. I guess I may be a northerner, after all. Baines Coffee with Ally to chat about the day. The best part of the Civil War: the end. Love, Us
