Where is Appomattox, VA?

A number of viewers have contacted us with a correction to the Civil War Bridge story. Stephanie Wilson writes:

"In the end of the segment on Sherman's pontoon bridge in Columbia, SC there is mention to Appomattox, VA where Lee surrendered. The narration located Appomattox in Northern Virginia, but it is actually in Central Virginia."

History Detectives would like to thank Stephanie and the other viewers who corrected our geography. The producers regret the error.
