This is one of the locations where it became obvious that the War had been lost for the Confederate States of America. It is a small house in a small field where it's only significance is that it is where a major event of surrender...More
We stopped by with friends of ours because our husbands love anything Civil War. We all enjoyed it! Outdoor houses, small indoor museum, short information movie, gift shop, etc. The best part, however, was the tour guide Stephanie. Her enthusiasm was contagious! She’s a volunteer...More
