Appomattox Court House, Virginia

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.
