The Ruins of Windsor
I was most excited about visiting the Windsor Ruins. This place fascinates me. It was a built as a residence for Smith Daniel in 1859-1861. It was a grand home that was used as a Union hospital and observation post during the Civil War. It burned down in 1890 when a guest left a cigar unattended on the balcony. The Corinthian columns remain. I read that the iron staircase has been relocated to Alcorn State University.
This is how we were feeling when we got there. Our colds were making us grumpy. But, we had to see everything we could.
