    Near Natural Bridge, Alabama, Winston Country Courthouse.
    Not all southerners were Rebs, it was a tough choice for all.

    The surrender site in Citronelle, Alabama where the last organized forces east of the Mississippi and west of the Chattahoochee rivers surrendered. Almost a month after Lee surrendered to Grant.

    There was originally a large oak tree at this location referred to as the "Surrender Oak" but it was blown down by a hurricane in 1907. A surrender festival is held here the first Saturday of May each year.

    It's been a long and cold winter, even in the mid-Atlantic and southeastern U.S., so this thread has quite expectedly slowed down. For those who are advancing in years and have the memory to prove it, and for those who happen to find this thread for the first time, the rules are little different in here. This thread is for photos and locations only. A little explanation is fine, but the more one posts, the more likely they are to editorialize or comment. If you go too far I may edit your post, but if I'm in a hurry I may delete it. If it disappears and you don't know why, just send me a PM.

    No replies are permitted in this thread. No elaboration on the significance of a site is allowed.

    There are a lot of people who want this thread to go away. As long as it stays about photos and motorcycles, I'll curate it.

    Thank you for your support.

    Virginia Beach Municipal Center. I've driven by this monument a thousand times and never noticed it until last week as a passenger in a car. Damned observant, ain't I?

    A reminder. In the past 8 hours this thread has had a banning and a mod edit.

    Pictures and locations only. No discussions

    The people who want this thread gone are still here, and they aren't going anywhere.
