House in the Horseshoe

(photograph copyright 2011 by Dan Routh)

Still life from the Alston House near Sanford, North Carolina. Also known as the House in the Horseshoe, because it sits in a horseshoe bend of Deep River, the house was the scene of a Revolutionary War skirmish between patriots under Col. Phillip Alston and Tory troops under David Fanning in July 1781. The house still has bullet holes on the front porch from the battle.
