The Bennett Place in Durham was the site of the largest surrender of the War for Southern Independence. This is an important piece of history. The state has long had an option on land across the street from the park which was also holds important history. That option is expiring and if they are not able to raise the money to by this land it will soon be developed and this chance will be gone forever.
Watch this great interview with site director John Guss by clicking here. John also did an interview with WUNC radio, which is worth the listen.
Historian Michael C. Hardy also has a great article on this wonderful historic site and the chance to save its history.
