Summary:
Their stories are as fascinating as their designs are beautiful. Some of the finest homes of the Old South played a role in the War Between the States, and stand today as a testament to a vanished way of life, and a reminder of the conflict that divided the nation. Join AMERICA'S CASTLES for a revealing look inside these historic homes, from Robert E. Lee's Arlington House--where he penned his resignation from the Union Army--to the White House of the Confederacy. In this stunning 1818 Victorian mansion, Jefferson Davis presided over the social, political and military heart of the Confederacy for five years. Tour the splendid grounds of Hunt-Phelan, designed by architect Robert Mills, whose other designs include the Washington Monument and the White House. See the library where General Grant planned the Battle of Vicksburg. And finally, trace the history of the Young family and their beloved Waverly, whose magnificent, 65-foot tall cupola was used as a lookout tower during the war.
