Interesting information: Wilmer McLean owned the farm where part of the First Battle of Bull Run was fought. This battle was one of the first of the war. He was too old to enlist, and being tired of war, he took his family to western Virginia in hopes of avoiding the war. He settled in Appomattox. It is a strange coincidence that he owned the land at the first battle and the house at the end.
It was a good day visiting a place I had heard about all my life.
Ya'll take care of each other. Cya.
