(clarifier: In school I wasn't interested in history unless it dealt with Boone, Crockett or Cowboys! But age has changed that, Sherry and I enjoy learning and seeing places of our USA history.)
In school I learned that the Civil War ended with the surrender of General Lee to General Grant at Appomattox Court House. BUT, but I never knew the difference in Appomattox County Courthouse and Appomattox Court House. It is a little confusing until you KNOW there is a small community named: Appomattox Court House, Virginia. The Appomattox county Courthouse (one word) was in that community. So my friends, it is obvious I paid little attention in school.
