Biloxi devastation: Beauvoir destroyed

BILOXI, MISSISSIPPI--Biloxi residents got their first look today at the devastation Hurricane Katrina wreaked on their famed beach front.

Landmarks like Beavoir, the final home of Confederate President Jefferson Davis, are virtually demolished.

The Davis home, built in 1854, has been reduced to rubble and a frame of a house.

UPDATE: Wednesday morning (31 August) Knight Ridder Newspapers are reporting: "The bottom floor of the library and the home itself were gutted. A Confederate flag, though, still draped over the arm of Davis' statue in the library."
