Droop Mountain is a small mountain in the Allegheny range of southeast West Virginia. It was the scene of one of West Virginia's most important battles during the Civil War. Droop Mountain formed a barrier to north-south passage along the west bank of the Greenbrier River, blocking troop movements. A determined Union attack on November 6, 1863 drove off Confederate defenders.
The rain made our visit even more cozy. The CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps) built the structures in 1930.
The Confederate Cemetery was covered in mounds of green moss with no solders' names. The texture paste symbol at the bottom of my layout was meant to depict the moss.
