Our historical trip touring locations in Lynchburg and Charlottesville just kept getting better and better! The docents are knowledgeable and make the home and time of history come alive. Great gift shop. Only negative is that some of the guides are pretty fussy about the kids touching things.

It takes a staggering amount of research to get every detail right. But historic dramas only work if the show runners go big or go home. Point of Honor clearly wants to commit to the real drama of the American Civil War, but it lacks the budget and the attention to detail necessary.
It was in part about slavery, but slavery was a moral concern for abolitionists. Yes, many Southern plantation owners freed their slaves, but the vast majority did not. There are a myriad of other concerns I have with the show. They have to do with the acting, the terrible-looking costumes, and how the three sisters at the Point of Honor Plantation have different accents.
