Confederate prisoners, or Union officers, or maybe both, executed drawings (thought to be in charcoal) on plaster walls in a second-story room of this circa 1835 brick house. The drawings portray soldiers on both sides, one bearing a striking resemblance to the "Thunderbolt of the Confederacy," Brig. Gen. John Hunt Morgan. One of the displays tells of Franklin native Marcellus Jerome Clarke, the best known of Kentucky's Civil War guerillas, who went by the nom de guerre, "Sue Mundy."
