I absolutely loved this tour. The tour guide was very informative in explaining the impact the civilians and the Shrivers endured before and after the war. He explained how the soldiers took over the house and used the basement for medical purposes and the attic for the sharp shooters. He really put into perspective the impact the war had after the 3 day fighting. I never thought of the aftermath it left behind with the stench of death and no running water to clean up for months. It was a sad outcome for this family with the husband dying in the war and the two daughters dying in their twenties of the diseases from the nonsterile environment they had to live in. The pub never opened because back in those times, women were not allowed to own or run a business. Take the time to visit.
