Annual Volunteer Banquet

The annual end-of-season Volunteer Banquet is always a success. This year the Spring Grove Farm Bed and Breakfast owned by park volunteers Joe and Emily Sayers hosted the event. The food was catered by Todd (staff) and Sheila Roach (volunteer). It was a great evening recognizing the many volunteers at Appomattox Court House.

General Lee leaving the McLean House

As General Lee left the McLean House, according to History of the 198th Regiment of the Pennsylvania Volunteers, “one of our bands, near by, through the generous impulse of the moment, struck up the appropriate air of Auld Lang Syne.” (Original instrument is exhibited at Appomattox Court House NHP.)
