150th Anniversary of end of the Civil War

At 3 pm today (April 9, 2015) bells will ring across America signaling the departure of Lee and Grant from the McLean House marking the 150 Anniversary of end of the Civil War - and the reuniting of the United States of America. The bell that will begin the ringing is pictured here (taken about 12:45 pm). The McLean House is in the background. A great day celebrating the end of bloodshed and the beginning of healing.
