Outfitted with a new shirt and pants from Linda, we celebrated my birthday by driving to Lynchburg for breakfast, shopping and a movie; then a short drive on east to Appomattox Court House. This was the scene of the surrender of General Robert E. Lee to General U. S. Grant, April 9, 1865, marking the end of the Civil War.

This picture is taken near a small Confederate cemetary, a quarter mile or so to the west of Appomattox Court House, now a National Historic Park.
