Vacationing later this month, and planning to hit New Market battlefield, as well as the museum in Front Royal. Hoping to have time to slip down to Lexington, and Appomattox time and weather permitting. We have been to Chancellorsville, but only went into the NPS building. Maybe we can do the driving tour on our way up since we can't check in until late afternoon anyway.

Driving into Appomattox keep an eye open for turkeys crossing the road. I was doing 70 when some idiot bird ran in front of us! I hit the brakes and it kept going. We had a nice visit there and then drove on to College Park.

Are there any historical sights on Drewry's Bluff and about the James River Squadron?

You read my mind. I think next Summer I'm going to do Richmond, Petersburg, then take a trip down to Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown. I'm already planning the logistics

I remember going up to visit my relatives in College Park. I even brought my Grandmother. We toured the Mall museums, the Zoo and visited Appomatox, Harper's Ferry and Antietam. My Mother went up there and saw Williamsburg. She taught English and I taught Social Studies.
