    Remember Jackson and Rachel never had children....as I remember, the estate eventually went to......someone--a nephew or "adopted" child, who gambled off and lost just about everything. By the time the war was over, much of the furniture was gone and the house was in disrepair, so originally the Confederate Home was pitched as a way to salvage the building. However, since the Jacksons were held in such high esteem as part of Nashville's heritage, it was saved.

    I'll try to look up the straight facts on that tomorrow.

    The location at 410 Confederate Ave. was right across from Grant Park according to Google Map.

    Apparently, the Georgia Soldiers Home was mired in controversy:

    I have downloaded all available volumes of the original Confederate Veteran in pdf format and can use acrobat to search for specific words, copy and paste and other useful aspects. I often include articles from CV in our Camp newsletter.
