|The (recreated) Henry House is located in Manassas National Battlefield Park, site of 2 major US Civil War battles. It belonged to the elderly and infirm Widow Henry, who became the first civilian casualty of the first battle of Manassas/Bull Run without leaving her bedroom. She is buried nearby. The odd-looking thing in the yard of the house is a monument to the Union soldiers killed in the battle.
Civil War battlefields are often such lovely places that it is hard to believe what happened there.
PP - levels, dodged house a little, cropped, cloned out a couple of little branches, resized, sharpened, reduced noise, added border and text, increased saturation slightly.
