This state historic site was the last we visited on our action-packed Saturday (we also visited Gen. Coffee & Little Ocmulgee on the same day). It is a very small park near Fitzgerald, GA and features a museum dedicated to the history of the Confederate States of America (CSA) and its president Jefferson Davis.
At the park is also a monument marking the exact spot where Davis, his wife, and entourage were finally captured in May of 1865. In the nearby woods, a nature trail takes you by a replica of his campsite as well as a monument dedicated to the only two casualties from the skirmish (which were Union soldiers killed by friendly fire).
Trey wasn’t all that interested in the museum but he did get a kick out of the miniatures model that re-enacted Davis’ capture. Oh yeah, and he made quite an effort to avoid the giant bust of Jefferson Davis which he referred to as “scary guy.”
I must also share that the park website features an interesting downloadable coloring book of rebel militia and their ladies.
