Carter House - main house

This is the front of the Carter House. There is a two room basement which is where the family and friends stayed during the bloody five hour battle of the Civil War. Can you imagine sitting in a dark, dirt floor room while the house and property are being stormed by gunfire and cannons? As soon as the battle was over, the front rooms were used as a hospital right above the basement. The tour guide was very gruesome to explain how the blood ran down into the basement, and the amputations of the soldiers piled up at the window by the basement.
