Appomattox Courthouse

Our final destination on Lee's Retreat was Appomattox Courthouse.  We toured the American Civil War Museum in Appomattox before heading out to the Appomattox Courthouse National Park.

The park is very well maintained and you feel like you have stepped back over a hundred years.  The buildings were very well taken care of and furnished.  The details from the dirt/gravel paths of streets to the gardens and fields made it seem like it was still an active community from the 1800s.  We traipsed around the grounds reading plaques, looking into buildings and discussing what we remembered from our studies.

I love being able to bring history to life for the kids.
