Bushong Farm has been preserved on the New Market Battlefield. Although it is within sight of Interstate 81, it is a fine place to imagine what life was like during the Civil War.

The woman in the first photo sits next to a "Soldiers Christmas Box." It would have been packed with small gifts, including highly practical items like a sewing kit.
