“Good idea - could be better presented”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2012

Thought it over-priced for the small amount that is there. Children would be bored. I'm sure Civil War enthusiasts would enjoy it, though.

“Civil war weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2011

As part of the Civil War weekend we were lucky enough to see Beverley Pelcher, a member of Living History, portraying Cornelia Peake McDonald who wrote of her experiences during the American Civil War. Dressed in period costume, she brought to life the terrible sufferings of the time.

“We loved it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2011

So much history and information about the civil war. Was the actual jail used during the civil war. Make sure to check for the signatures of the soldiers that signed the walls and ring the bell.
