    Can you identify the place?

    Just returned from a 1000 mile solo road trip on my scooter. I visited Mount Vernon, Monticello, Mannassas, The Widerness, Chancellorsville, Ceder Creek, Sharpsburg, Harpers Ferry, Gettysburg and one other place. Can you guess from the photo where?

    Agreed, Wilmer McLean House, Appomattox ... The war started in his front yard and ended in his parlor...

    Good to see you Warpig1976...
    Regards, Jim

    Winner winner chicken dinner!!
    The McLean house, Appomattox Court House, VA.
    I was a bit disappointed to find out the house was taken apart and shipped to D.C to be displayed in the 1880's? The company hired went bankrupt and the wood was left to rot and the bricks stolen one by one. The only original pieces that where present at the surrender are the 5000+ bricks that weren't stolen and they used those to reconstruct the front of the house. Even the furniture is reproduced as it was all bought up by Union Officers present.
    Well worth the trip to the middle of nowhere Virginia though if only to stand at Lee's last Headquarters in the middle of the woods where his last Council of War took place. It was also the place Longstreet declared in a whisper "Not yet".
    There's a beautiful world out there fellas, get out of the recliner and go see it with your own eyes.

    As I recall, Washington in the 1880's was a decidedly corrupt place. Isn't surprising a historical building would be neglected.
