ECW Weekender: Touring Appomattox (Virtually)

Yesterday, I was lamenting on Twitter that I should not go to Appomattox. It had been in the back of my mind that, if I could manage it with my work schedule, an impromptu afternoon drive there would be appropriate on the actual anniversary. Thanks to COVID-19 and wanting to follow the community guidelines that scheme was not an option on April 9, 2020.

However, someone reached out of social media and reminded me of this great resource offered by the Appomattox Court House National Park. They’ve created a virtual tour of many key sites within the historic area!

So, come take a tour and never leave the house… Appomattox Virtual Tour

Where is your favorite place in this national park? Or what site did you most enjoy seeing on the screen today?

  1. While I hate the situation the world has found itself in with this virus, I’m loving how the historical community is responding to it. So much is available online now! Live presentations and discussions, tours, special social media events, etc. My CW Roundtable is even making a bigger push for online outreach (finally!) and doing our meetings on Facebook. When we come out of this, I hope most of these things will continue. It’s a great way to connect and educate.
