This place is unique, located behind a gun shop and shooting range, it offers a unique look at camp life during the civil war. It is a must if you are interested in the civil war and history.

This site is very educational for those that like history, and a great reflection of how it use to be, way back when. A war that cost our county many lives in a moment in time.
