« Back to Around my home town, with two stops for beer

Believe it or not, this is the local bank two blocks from my house. During the Civil War it was a hospital, as was every nearly other building in the old core of Winchester. After the Battle of Gettysburg a ten-mile long wagon train of wounded arrived in Winchester, itself the scene of four major battles and over seventy smaller engagements. Which makes it a bit easier to grasp why these people cannot seem to forget the Civil War. Then again, if Europe can put World War II behind it and get along between nations, why can’t a bunch crackers in the American South do the same? Hmmmm.
