Did You Know…

Did you know the American Civil War began in Wilbur McLean's backyard and ended in his front parlor?

Yes, in a way. This is a popularly held fact about the American Civil War. Although, the Civil War began on April 12, 1861, at Fort Sumter in Charleston, South Carolina, the first main battle was the Battle of Manassas (or Bull Run) near Manassas, Virginia. This battle was fought on part of Wilbur McLean's backyard. After the battle, McLean moved his family to the small town of Appomattox Court House, Virginia. Appomattox remained quiet until April, 1865, during Lee's Retreat. On April 9, 1865, General Robert E. Lee surrendered to General Ulysses S. Grant in Wilbur McLean's front parlor. Read about the Civil War.

Who's Your Hero?
