Pursuit to Appomattox
April 8 - 10, 2005
The biggest event of the season fell early on the season's calendar: Appomattox. Some veterans had made the pilgrimage before but for the 67th and most of its members, this was our first time visiting where the War ended. Indeed it was the LONGEST we've ever traveled for an event thereby ensuring we'll be attending only for the big anniversaries. Still, thirteen of us braved the nine-hour journey deep into the heart of Virginia. Mother Nature blessed us with sun and verdant green setting for Saturday's battle scenario and Sunday's surrender ceremony. We even had enough time on Sunday morning to visit Appomattox Courthouse itself only three miles away. All it all, it was well worth the journey.
