A few of you folks may be aware of this, but others won't be and I found it interesting. My wife and I recently returned from a Virginia vacation and we visited the Confederate Cemetery just outside Appomattox Court House. There are 19 men at rest there who were among the last members of the Army of Northern Virginia to die. Eleven are unknowns but one of the knowns is Oscar Demesme, who enlisted Sept. 13, 1861 in Company D, Donaldsonville Artillery. What a tragedy, for the man to go through almost the entire war and then die a day or two before Lee's lean veterans laid down their arms. Appomattox Courthouse provides an awe-inspring visit. You can walk the same path that the boys walked down to surrender their rifles in April of '65. The McLean house is rebuilt but the inn where the paroles were printed is an original structure. If you're ever near there, check it out.
