The Angel of the Battlefield
Clara Barton with Walt Whitman at Chatham, December 1862
I knew of Chatham. I saw it from Fredericksburg, on the other side of the Rappahannock, but I had never gone there. Also known as the Lacy House during the Civil War, I finally had a chance to visit the National Park Service site last year and was immediately taken with its beauty, location and history. – Mort Künstler
