Among the agreed upon terms was that every soldier within General Lee's army would receive a printed pardon to take home with him to prove that he was an honorable soldier and had not deserted the army.

Two presses were set up in this building, the Clover Hill Tavern, and put into service, and in a few days all of the necessary pardons had been printed.

The original courthouse burned in 1892 and this is a complete reconstruction.
