    Bill Hefner likes tojoke that he wasborn in a Civil Warhospital.

    And hell remind his au-dience that he wasnt bornduring the Civil Warhesnot quite that old.

    But the history and thestories that surroundedhim as a youngster and ayoung man have foundtheir way into modernexpressions of themusic of that unquietera in American andlocal history.

    The Hefner familyhome near MillPoint was in-deed usedas aC i v i lWa r

    hospital for troopswounded during the Bat-tle of Droop Mountain.

    When Hefner was grow-ing up, bloody handprintsremained on the wallsand, oddly enough, on theceiling, as those boardswerent in place yet be-cause parts of the housewere still under construc-tion. It took about 10coats of paint to coverthose bloody stains and

    rid the house of astark reminder.

    And, thefamily hasghost storiesto share, aswell. Bill himselfheard music

    well intot h e

    n igh t

    a n dthought his

    uncle wasawake. Finding his

    way downstairs, hefound no source of music,only darkness. The samewent for hearing someonechopping wood in the weehours. No one stood at thewoodblock wielding theaxe. Only the sounds of awoodchopper fell on hisears.

    Once his mother heardsomeone walking into herbedroom, felt the bed give

    as if someone had sat on itand heard a heavy sigh.When she turned on herbedside light, she had nocompany, though.

    Those stories and othersplayed in Hefners mindas he visited Civil War bat-tlefields in Virginia, in-cluding Richmond,Manassass and Mechan-icsville.

    When the family wasasked to participate in Lit-tle Levels Heritage Fair toperform Civil War-eramusic, they not onlyagreed, they began to re-search the history of those

    songs so they would knowthe inspiration of thesongwriter.

    Thus, Bill, his wife Elma
