Location: West Virginia
Length: 28 min
In this film, a team of archaeologists combines traditional research and modern technology to unveil a lost era in American history. The film examines fateful events leading to the destruction of the once-proud legacy of a loyal family of Confederate Virginians, spanning decades of the early nineteenth century across a fertile fringe of wilderness Western Virginia. With the help of about 80 slaves, their Southern-style plantation thrived. A century later, all that remained was the family home itself.
