Bleak House was the headquarters of General Longstreet and his staff. Cannons were placed on the front lawn, guards surrounded the house, and sharpshooters were at every window - the enemy was plainly visible, especially from the tower windows. A shot from the tower fatally wounded General William P. Sanders. Soldier/Artist drawings of confederate dead on walls in home are over 140 years old.
