Whitman House, Ringgold, GA


General Sherman spent the night in this house. He was a gracious guest but the owner wouldn't accept his money. She only wanted Conferate money. He is said to have made the comment "She hasn't lost yet" about the Civil War.
Originally before the new Ringgold City Hall was built, the Depot could be seen from the upstairs window. That's why I painted this corner. Not to mention the light was right on it.
