This was our second trip visiting Appomattox Court House, we feel so serine when walking about the buildings. Tom always visits the Grave of a young man Lafayette Meeks, who died at the beginning of the Civil War. Meeks died on October 4 1861 at the Battle of Bull Run and Manassas, this is the same date as Tom’s Birthday.
On Palm Sunday April 9 1865, General Lee surrenders to General Grant at Appomattox Court House, Virginia. The 2 Generals meet at the Mclean House to discuss the terms of surrender which signaled the end of the Civil War.
