What a great walk in the Confederate history. The capitol was completely redone. What a lovely capitol building showing the history of the south. Do not miss it.

If you are a history buff, you will enjoy the statehouse. It exudes the history of the beginnings of our country. You can stand where Washington resigned his commission and turned the military over to civilian control.
