General Wheeler’s Birthday Celebration

Pond Spring Site Director Kara Long said last Saturday’s celebration honoring General Joe Wheeler was a success. The day’s festivities included the sampling of a Wheeler family cake recipe and re-enactments of Civil War Calvary drills. Pictured above: Sally Walser, Joe Wheeler’s great-great-granddaughter, poses beside a display of Civil War Uniforms. Pond Spring, the home of Wheeler, will next host a Christmas event on Sunday, Dec. 9. The home will be decorated with live greenery and receive a visit from Santa.
