|McLean's Home - Grant & Lee agreed to surrendering terms|
It was interesting to see the place where the Civil War finally came to an end and heartbreaking descriptions of the men’s reactions to the surrender. The McLean house gave great insight to how they lived back in the 1860’s. The kitchen and the ice house are still separate from the main house and the slave’s quarters were nearby. I did see some old quilts, but there was no information about them.
The local weather man says this heat will break next week. I hope so because it is not fun spending all day inside the motorhome. I hope everyone is staying cool during these hot days.
I received an email from Borders about closing their doors. I love visiting Borders. When we lived in Albuquerque, I would drive an extra 15 minutes to a grocery store just because their neighbor was a Borders. I know there are still other bookstores but for some reason, Borders was my favorite. I will miss them.
