Stillness at Appomattox: The McLean House parlor security cam caught this image of an "intruder" in the "Surrender Room" recently. He was dressed as Father Christmas would have been during the Civil War era (see Thomas Nast's Harper's Weekly illustrations of the jolly old elf back then.) Stay tuned because we'll be on the lookout for him tonight, although our NPS Integrated Pest Management procedures mean we won't be able to leave any milk and cookies. #StillnessAtAppomattox #StNicholasAtAppomattox #NPSMuseumHandbookProcedures
