For the next few posts I’m going to focus on the newly-renovated General Lee’s Headquarters complex, which I was fortunate enough to visit on the 7TH of November. First of all, I want to say that the Thompson house looks amazing and I’m so happy to see it without the dormers! This photo was taken from inside the ruins of the Dustman barn, a battle-era stone foundation. You can tell from the lighter-colored stone underneath the left window of the Thompson house that some of the windows were recently redone. I found the Dustman foundation almost as interesting as the Thompson house, and enjoyed visiting before the grass got too high to tramp around in.
