Elmwood Inn was already 20 years old when 75,000 troops descended on our tiny village of Perryville in October 1862. Gunpowder green tea would have been the tea of choice for the fortunate soldier who could secure a bit for his knapsack. Merchant John Burton, Elmwood's first owner, stocked it in his general store but hid it along with other valuables as the invading armies scavenged their way across the region.
You'll find our commemorative tea tins in the National Park gift shops at Gettysburg National Park, Manassas, and at the Lincoln Home in Springfield, Illinois.
