After our visit of the Stonewall Jackson Shrine we headed back to Noelle's brother's house to get Parker and pack the rest of our stuff into the car. We then hit the road headed south towards Tennessee. We drove through Richmond and were making really good time when I realized that we would probably have time to visit Appomattox Court House National Historic Park. And so, that's just what we did.
We pulled into the parking lot there and fed Sierra her lunch on a blanket in the grass. It was pleasant experience, but unfortunately it looked like rain by the time she had finished. We packed up the blanket in a drizzle and headed into the historic site to check things out. Our first stop was the surrender house where Robert E. Lee surrendered to U.S. Grant.
The home was simply decorated, but interesting. Of particular interest was the room where Lee and Grant met to discuss the terms of surrender.
From the tavern we walked to the outskirts of town to the first meeting site of Grant and Lee.
