We will be placing our monument at one of the houses in Heritage Corner in Columbus, Georgia. It's the Walker-Peters-Langdon house. It's the oldest house in Columbus and has a slave cottage in the backyard. This site is historically important because it shows where the slaves actually were housed and where the slave master resided. It shows kind of how the slaves lived once they researched their destination.
