There Are Still Bullet Holes From The Revolutionary War In The Walls Of The House In The Horseshoe In North Carolina

For those with a penchant for American history, a visit to the Alston House, more commonly known as the House in the Horseshoe, near Sanford, North Carolina, is a must. “Why” you may ask? Because it’s not every day you can roll up on a historic site in the Tar Heel State and view more than two dozen bullet holes inflicted during a battle upon a pre-Revolutionary War home… bullet holes that are still there, in full view.
