QUILTING HISTORY

Wilmer McLean used to say the Civil War began and ended at his house, which was located near the Manassas battlefield. In the summer of 1861, a loose cannonball from that battle crashed into the chimney and fell into a pot of warming stew.  The family later moved to a small community called Appomattox Court House. It is the McLean parlor where the signing of terms of surrender took place. The Court House Square block dates to the 1840s.
