On January 6, 1862, Winchester had a four-inch snowfall. It is 4:50 p.m., about fifteen minutes before sunset and the sun has just popped out before setting. as the storm passes off to the northeast. Sadly, the storms clouds of war would not go away so easily.
The courthouse built in 1840, has changed very little since the Civil War days in Winchester. It had a fenced-in area that was used by both the North and South to contain prisoners. The scene is in winter (when the front courtyard was not full of prisoners) and incorporates some of the other buildings in the area. The C.E. Taylor & Co. (no relation) Bakery is on the left where the F&M Bank stands today. The building on the extreme right was the Senseny Building during the Civil War. It is now the Feltner Building, corporate headquarters of the F&M Bank. To the right of the courthouse in the far background, with the arches, is the Market House. Behind the Senseny building are the Clerk's office and the office of the Winchester Virginian. COA included.
