long way home event in appomattox The five year “Long Road Home” program continues in Appomattox this weekend. Organizers say the series is unlike any other Civil War re-enactment or living history program; and is building momentum each year in anticipation of the final event to be held in April 2015 with the commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the end of the American Civil War in Appomattox. The event kicks off tomorrow with a special program designed for school age children. CLICK HERE for a complete schedule of events.
