#540 Vacation Virginia #1 - Appomattox Court House

The Johnston 2013 summer vacation plan is to spend time exploring the beautiful Commonwealth of Virginia.

We kicked off the summer season last month on April 6 with Vacation Virginia #1 when we ventured about an hour and a half south of Charlottesville to Appomattox Court House.

After watching Spielberg's Lincoln, we wanted to see the Confederate surrender room in the McLean house at Appomattox.  One powerful combination!


And because it's impossible for Kelly to be anywhere near Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest without stopping, we stopped.  On this visit, we learned about Mr. Jefferson's route from Monticello to Poplar Forest.  It's always about the maps.

Yours in kicking off the Vacation Virginia season,
