“The farm will go forward in time and focus on the Civil War from the perspective of everyday farm families. Visitors can learn how farm families faced the challenges of keeping the family fed and clothed, and the farm operating, often with no men, draft animals, or seeds to plant a cash crop. People can also visit a Confederate encampment on the farm, talk to civilian soldiers, and learn about a soldiers’ life.” – Cindy Earls, Lead Homeplace Interpreter
