** Hi all! Just wanted to let you know I’m changing my posting schedule . . . from this point forward, I’ll be posting only on Mondays and Wednesdays (barring breaks for vacation or other “bumps in the road”). Fridays will be reserved for my new blog venture, “St. Augustine Fridays”, dedicated to my second-favorite place in the world, St. Augustine, Florida. Feel free to check it out at http://staugustinefridays.blogspot.com (first post on January 16) **
|Interior of the McPherson barn|
Ever wonder what the inside of the McPherson barn looks like? We didn’t get to go inside, but we did manage to peer through a little cubby hole to get this shot. It’s amazing to think that this is the same sight so many wounded soldiers would have seen, as well as any sharpshooters who might have secreted themselves inside the barn while plying their deadly trade. The barn, dating from the 1810s or 20s, is about two hundred years old --- that, to me, makes it fascinating even if a battle hadn’t taken place here.
