The Surrender at Appomattox
(The Long Road Home...)

Appomattox, VA

April 10 - 12, 2015

Your Correspondent and his Confederate comrade commemorated this 150th Anniversary by spending the following week traveling through Virginia starting with a more throrough exploration of Appomattox Court House after all the crowds had cleared off. Then we drove west into the Shenadoah Valley to Lexington, VA. There we explored Stonewall Jackson's House, the Virginia Military Institute where Jackson taught prior to the War, Washington and Lee University that has the Lee Chapel and Museum (final resting place of Robert E. Lee and his family), and Stonewall Jackson Memorial Cemetery where the General is buried.
