The End of the American Civil War...

...was some 150 years ago.  It was this week that General Lee surrendered the Army of Northern Virginia to General Grant at Appomattox.  This effectively ended the war, although hostilities would continue for some weeks.

Anyway, when Mister Tristan (the 7 year old human being, not the blog) and I visited the Mile 106 stone of the Mason-Dixon Line a couple weeks ago (see my post here), Tristan took another photo of a simple stone wall.

I enhanced it using iPhoto with these results...which are eerily reminiscent, to me, of some of the photography of the Civil War:
