“Very neat historic area. Worth the stop.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

It is very interesting to see this old school and grounds. Have to say though that I went because of seeing it on The North and The South. It is The movie set for West Point for George and Ory.

“Impressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2012

Hard to realize this place is still here and looks just like the scenes filmed there about the cadets assisting in the defense of Vicksburg in the John Wayne movie "The Horse Soldiers" Almost expected to hear the Duke himself.
