Why You Should Always Sort Your Papers Before Thowing Them Away

When I lived in Center City Philadelphia and walked to work in Univeristy City I walked every day down Pine Street and past the Civil War and Underground Railway Museum located in a row house there. Amazingly I never went in, partly because my hours working at a musuem made it hard for me to visit other museums. Well, I have missed my chance because they are in the process of relocating to another location closer to the historic district of the city.

Anyway, in the process of sorting and packing to move they made an amazing discovery. The have found one of the three original copies of surrender papers from the end of the Civil War. How cool is that!! I can't wait till they reopen in the new site to go and see it.
