" Future years will never know the seething hell and the black infernal background of countless minor scenes and interiors, (not the official surface courteousness of the Generals, not the few great battles) of the Secession war; and it is best they should notï¿½the real war will never get in the books." ~ Walt Whitman
Didn't burn to the ground. In fact, most of the important relics etc. were spared destruction from what I heard. A tragedy and a miracle it hasn't happened sooner given all the people running around France burning shit. Personally, I suspect arson.
