We visited the Woodrow Wilson Library and Birthplace in Staunton VA. Quite a well planned location. He lived in his house only until he was 2 years old and then moved South. The visit is more to a setting of a living site from the late 1800's rather than a president's upbringing. The library is not an "official" presidential library. Rather, it's a local effort to preserve much of his personal history, his accomplishments and his frustrations. There were many who disagreed with the US entry into World War I. To memorialize this, the basement has a replica of a European trench with models of weapons and a GI (doughboy?).. Overall, it's a good - but not exceptional - history tour. A restored pierce Arrow was a highlight Overall, a must if you're in the area. But not worth a long detour.
