March 8: Appomattox, VA

Hobbling into Appomattox late I opted for this B and B and how was it nice, owners were very nice and accommodating. Definitely going back to eat at the restaurant.

Spent most of the day where this happened - very powerful experience.


This man rode away and our country was headed towards a new future - Lincoln was assassinated within one week of the surrender however. Unbelievable...

Still thinking about these powerful images and trying to digest what happened in Appomattox in 1865.

Support the walk from coast to coast.

I am walking across our great nation to discover some answers and perhaps wisdom from all Americans!
Come walk with me for 10 minutes or 10 miles. Be a part of my documentary.
Favorite mantra: Fear makes the Wolf bigger than he is.
