Annet's House

Found another photo of my great aunt's house on the bluff overlooking the river in Natchez, Mississippi. They had to work to keep that afternoon sun from heating the house. They tried vines and awnings and trees. Last photo is the house as it looks today. The new owners did a fabulous restoration.

The last is a link to a .pdf file of a Union pass I found in the house.  It belonged to my great grandmother, who was from Alton, Illinois.  She was allowed to go back and forth across the Union lines because she was a good dance partner and could play a card game called Euchre.

This link is for the Union Pass.
