Peaches, Prison Sites, & Yoders
Let’s celebrate Georgia’s most famous crop as we visit the Lane Packing Company in Fort Valley in the heart of the Peach Belt. You can bring back as many bags and bushels as the bus will hold and see how the operation is run. Lunch is a treat at Yoder’s Mennonite Restaurant. It’s only a short drive to historic Andersonville, the site of the Confederate prison during the War Between The States…too many captives and not enough food or space. Our group will tour the Drummer Boy Museum, famous for its Confederate and Union drummer boy uniforms, complete with original drums, and a local guide will narrate and point out many interesting facts of this tragic chapter in America’s history. Return home late afternoon.
