Surratt carbine wall

In this wall, located in the family dining room, the carbine that was hidden by John M. Lloyd fell was trapped. The detectives knocked a hole in this wall to retrieve the weapon.

    Back to this story – very fascinating. Maybe you should go onto that website and submit a correction.

    They actually allow for submissions and correction requests. You might see my name there. I submitted a photo of the same sign from when I was there last April 28th. I also submitted a photo of the little outbuilding on the property.

    I think some updated photos of Cleydael are in order, as well, on the page with their roadside sign.

      My above post does not belong here. Not sure how I ended up posting it here, but it needs to be deleted – along with this one. Thx.
