This is the Battle bedroom in the Battle Friedman home in Tuscaloosa. The Battles were the original owners. The furniture in this room is theirs. The bed is hinged so that it in the summer, it could be pulled to the middle of the room and the headboard and footboard removed. They did that so that the breeze could blow through the room from the windows. If you've ever been in Alabama in the summer, you know why. It's miserably hot, even at night.
