Va. Couple Discovers Civil War Graffiti In Their Home

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

A couple in Berryville, Virginia, removed paint from a stairwell in their house and found graffiti from the 1860s. Confederate soldiers drew their president, Jefferson Davis. They also left a message for Union troops, signed, a Rebel that has given you a many sound thrashings - doubtless true, although, the house was soon in Union hands.
