Memorial Marker for the Whippy Swamp Muster Group

This past Wednesday, a gentleman came by our Visitors’ Center at the Frampton Plantation House and the first thing he said when he walked in was “This place sure doesn’t look like it did the last time I was here!” Well, we have added some new gift items and displays, but that wasn’t what he was talking about. Turns out he hadn’t been here in about 60 years. At that time, he said he was working in Mr. Campbell’s field culling watermelons. It is really neat that our director, Jim Wescott, was able to get this wonderful plantation house saved for our Commission to serve as our offices and Visitors’ Center!!!

Anyway, William W. Corbin, Jr, this former farm hand, will be speaking today at the dedication of the Historic Marker for the Whippy Swamp Muster Group. Mr. Corbin is quite the historian and will be speaking about the guard and its part of the Civil War today at 3 pm at the Harmony Presbyterian Church located just outside of Hampton on Hwy 601 North in Crocketville. I’m getting ready to leave right now to be a part of history. Come join me!!!
