A group of us were attending a church conference in Dunn, NC, so we decided to sight see around town during our time off. This place was nice, but not much to see, but a lot to learn.

There's a big idea here but I would come during a re-enactment weekend or something. Quick 3 minute video and then artifacts from civil war era--not just civil war here.
