In Brandy Station, Virginia, graffiti is history. The Graffiti House, on a civil war battleground there, has the scrawling and scribbling of generations past. On the walls are a series of signatures, names, drawings that were expressions by the soldiers passing through. The Brandy Station Foundation is trying to restore The Graffiti House and preserve secrets buried for a century and a half.
