A house in Brandy Station, VA is adding it’s bathroom to history charts. The home was built in the 1858 and has been undergoing surveys into it’s history. It’s believed to have been used as a hospital by Confederate and Union forced in the war. During the most recent study, they uncovered graffiti in the bathroom walls dating back to the Civil War era. The house is covered in markings under the drywall from when soldiers were in the home. Researchers hope these markings, drawings, and names can help them uncover what was going on in the home during the war.
