One day while exploring in the woods, the girls found six neat columns of handhewn flat rocks (the one in the narrow photo is toppled over). We asked our landlord, a history buff, and he said there were a few plantation houses on the property during Civil War times. Near here, there is the entrance to a now-vanished bridge we can walk up on that used to cross the South River next to our drive, and he knows the story of the Confederate soldiers who were guarding it and were killed by Union soldiers. He also showed us where there used to be a mill on the river and a general store next to it. All that hustle and bustle on our now quiet piece of land - amazing to imagine and to walk in the same paths every day. Jing took these today during our walk.
