War Wounds

This is the back of the field office at the Carter House property. The holes are from bullets received during the Civil War. This is said to be the most damaged building still standing from the Civil War. There are over 1,000 bullet holes on the property. There is also holes from cannons used that day.

  1. Very strange that it would have survived all these years. An interesting piece of history, thanks.

  2. That is so interesting and amazing that it is still there!

  3. Yikes, how interesting! I surprised that many bullet holes haven't compromised the integrity of the building enough for the weather to get a foothold in damaging it. Good to see it's still standing.

  4. It's a neat looking building. The holes just give it more character!
