Happy Surrender Day!

On this day in 1865, Lee surrendered the Army of Northern Virginia to Grant at Appomattox Court House, Virginia.

Lawyers, Guns, and Money correspondent "d" also reminds us that April is "Confederate Heritage Month." Why not celebrate with a tasteful "Hour of Glory" clock?

I am enjoying the discussion in the comments over at LG&M. Topic: Is the Dover Publications cut-out model of an antebellum plantation inappropriate? Can it be redeemed if it is incorporated into a Lego-scale reenactment of Sherman's March, complete with burnination?
