Pictured below is the McClean family on the steps of the house. It was taken several months after the surrender, in August 1865. Sorry it is so small but it is borrowed from Appomattox Court House National Historic Park website. Click on the name to visit.
I find it interesting that my house echoes the look of this house with the same steps up to the main floor and a big front porch. But we have more rooms on the side and, of course, a 2 car garage!
Of course, I need to spotlight Sophi... she was very well behaved during the visit although she was more interested in the great outdoors than the history or the buildings.
She's really good at posing for the camera unless she has to look into the sun or a flash goes off in her face. I guess we take her picture so often that she knows to look and smile... sometimes she does it and others ... well you know 18 month olds!
Happy Quilting All!
