"Never do a wrong thing to make a friend or to keep one." Robert E. Lee

2015 is the 150th anniversary of the end of the American Civil War. Of note, more than 1/2 of all of the major engagements of the war took place in Virginia. The first land battle following Ft. Sumter of the war was at Big Bethel in Hampton and York Counties, and the last was the Battle of Appomattox Courthouse. The last battle of the war was the Battle of Palmito Ranch in Texas, nearly a month after Lee surrendered.
