I don't know what Tessa C is talking about........Blenheim is a hidden gem! The volunteers are among the most enthusiastic and informative I've ever encountered. No one can expect to learn all about the Civil War in a hour. But immerse yourself in the writings left by these Union soldiers and you will feel history coming alive like you've never experienced it before! No other historical site has given me a sense of what the people were actually feeling and experiencing as Blenheim does. I've been in many museums, churches, and historical houses around the world, but never felt I was experiencing how the people "thought" at that particular time in history. My husband and I spent three hours examining the graffiti, also totally in awe realizing the labor of love performed by the archeologists who have for years been painstakingly uncovering the paint and wallpaper to reveal these hidden messages of war and all the feelings they unearthed. Blenheim is so good, I'm bringing friends back here soon to share this treasure with them.
