Bennett Place, Durham, 1923.

Alfred Brophy

You are, of course, correct Jason. This is where Confederate General Johnston surrendered -- a couple of weeks after Lee's surrender at Appomattox. I want to talk soon about the plaque on that monument, because it seems to strangely adopt interpretations of both sides of the War. Bennett Place is a small park -- and quite anti-climactic. A compact park to commemorate the end of lots and lots of suffering.
