Beautiful split rail fence brings touch of history to Virginia countryside

An unusual combination of board fence and split rail "snake" or "zig zag" fence contributes to the picturesque beauty of this farm in Appomattox, Virginia. Snake rail is a type of fence constructed out of timber logs, usually split lengthwise into rails and typically used for agricultural or decorative fencing. Such fences require much more timber than other types of wood fences, and so are generally only common in areas where wood is abundant. Interestingly, during the American Civil War, split rail fences were a major source of firewood for both the Union and Confederate armies. ( fotosearch.com)
