The New River/Greenbrier Valley area of West Virginia is home to White Sulphur Springs and the Old White hotel, now The Greenbrier resort, then used by Confederates as a Civil War hospital. Other well-known battle sites include Lewisburg and Princeton. Robert E. Lee's famous horse Traveler was purchased in the Greenbrier area.
