What is an fact about the civil war?

The first LAND battle of the US Civil War was at the Battle of Bull Run. It took place on a farm owned by the McClean family. Following the battle, they were so horrified by the destruction, they sold their farm, and moved away to Appomatox Courthouse, VA, where they bought a house. In 1865, when Gen. Lee signed the surrender to Gen. Grant, it was signed in the parlor of the McLean home- in Appomatox. The war started- and ended- on property owned by the same people.
