      Gerry,
      The NPS owns the Piper Farm. Lou and Regina bought the lease on the
      house from Doug & Paula Reed. They had obtained a lease from the NPS to
      restore the house at their expense and run the B&B as a way to recoup
      their investment. It was a very early effort at public/private
      partnership and worked pretty well. Lou & Regina just got tired of the
      business and are just living in the house and enjoying their retirement.

        Tom,

        Thanks much! Your explanation puts a little more information on what Tom
        Shay mentioned.

        BTW, has SHAF been successful in locating the other signal stations used by
        the AoP during the battle? One of the maps, and one used rather extensively
        in illustrations, shows three or so signal stations, including the famous
        one on Elk Ridge..........

        Very respectfully,
        G E "Gerry" Mayers
        Confederate Signal Corps,
        Longstreet's Corps
