General James B. McPherson (1828-1864) was born and raised in Clyde and graduated first in his class from West Point Academy. He was mortally wounded while leading his Union troops in the battle of Atlanta. His sword, worn when he fell, is on display along with many other items belonging to the General and his family.

We hope you enjoy our work.
