    Was closed when I got there. Looked very interesting walking around the building and peaking in the windows. Will visit again if I'm in the area.

    Honoring ancestry that fought for a righteous cause. The home is maintained and cared for by good folk. The curator (an adopted Yankee, LoL) Mr. Bill Baxter was very helpful and kind. A great place to reconnect with ones ancestry. Sad, this is not the local treasure it should be. Should be a hub for family across the region to gather in large numbers and be proud of who they are. One day all the slander and lies will be removed from history then the truth will be remembered as self evident. The Un-Civil War Shattering the Historical Myths by Leonard M. Scruggs
