Custer battlefield home saved





More than 144 years after General George A. Custer positioned his headquarters on its front porch, the Charles Goodall Trevilian House will cement its permanent place in the battle's history for future generations. After some negotiations, the sprawling antebellum homeplace on Danne Road was recently purchased by the Civil War Preservation Trust with the assistance of the Trevilians Station Battlefield Foundation."People see different things when they look at a house," said Gerald W. Harlow, president of TSBF."When I see this house, I get excited. It's a great house by itself."
