Those are bullet holes you can still see from the battle (Pickett’s Charge) still scattered around the old barn. The two-room home and farm land were actually owned by a freed former slave: Abraham Brian. Confederate troops from Mississippi fired on Union soldiers who were positioned around the farm; the gunfire nearly destroyed the property. After the war, the government only gave Brian $15 of the estimated $1K+ damage that had been done. He sold the farm shortly after and moved on.
