We went to see the house of confederacy but they were relocating it. It is a lovely place but got crowded out by the hospitals around it. Not sure why they didn’t leave a little more room for it.

We enjoyed our tour of the White House, particularly the original pieces that were on display. They did a nice job restoring the building.

This was a terrific tour of the home Jefferson Davis lived in during the Civil War. Our guide was great. She anticipated our questions. You can take pictures. You do need to be able to climb stairs for this. Not good for small kids. Takes...More
