Sweat soaking their wool uniforms, the Union and Confederate soldiers met near the stone wall in Pennsylvania to exchange handshakes, pleasantries and even a few jokes.

The Southwest again saw soaring temperatures on Sunday with forecasters predicting the aptly named Furnace Creek in the heart of Death Valley, California, might hit a 100-year high of 130 degrees.

The pilot and occupants were uninjured.
