Interesting campus. The University was initially destroyed after the Civil War, but restored later. The barracks look like a fortress. Beautiful campus with extremely well mannered cadets. Here, men and women really work out. Spend some time at the campus museum. See Stonewall (Thomas) Jackson's horse and raincoat. I found the bottom floor quite unique. They have a large collection of antique weapons. I learned how air guns were the stealth weapon of the day. Next to the parade ground you can visit Marshall C. Museum. He served several presidents. You will learn about his success in WW2 and Korea (after Mac Arthur's fiasco). Worth the $5 admission charge.
