    Favorite thing: Rebel State Historic Site started as a memorial to an unknown Confederate Soldier who died nearby. He got separated from his unit and met the owners of the nearby farm, the Barnhills. Shortly thereafter, the soldier stopped to drink from a stream on the property and was shot and killed by Union Cavalry soldiers. The Barnhills then found the body and buried it on their land. Since then Rebel State Historic Site also became a center for Country and Gospel music concerts and has grown rapidly in popularity.

    There is a very nice museum inside the visitors center dedicated to the Civil War, area history and culture, and country and gospel music.

    Fondest memory: Had a great conversation with one of the park rangers and heard a very good banjo player.
