Today we took a drive to visit a friend in Appomattox after work. I've never been to Appomattox and I really wanted to see the famous Court House where Robert E. Lee surrendered. We heard that it burned down, but when we got there we found out that the park that it was a part of closed at 5pm and we couldn't go see it. We still got to see some battlefield and a sweet cannon that may or may not have been used in the Civil War.
Then we had to settle for the "new" Appomattox Court House.
There was a memorial out front "for those who served our country-state in times of need."
And guess who we found??
But there were more!
