“One sees and feels much here to remind him or her of the antebellum South. Such is fitting, too, for Thomas Maslin was somewhat of a southern gentleman, and he was destined to be associated with events that marked local division of sympathies about the time of the Civil War.” (Submitted on July 16, 2008.)
