This College was featured in "The Horse Soldiers". A great walking tour of the buildings is provided at the Visitor's Center.

“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.

“A Very Nice Stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

This is a prep school for boys in the late 1800's, the buildings and grounds are well worth the stop, take water if its hot.
