  • Drove from Cincinnati, Ohio to see this piece of hallowed ground. Ended up being one of my favorite battlefields to go to. I love the layout of the tour and all the off the road hiking trails. One of my favorite things at the battlefield was the "museum" it was one of the only displays that I have seen at a battlefield that encourages handling of specific displays and has more of a one on one interaction to really bring history to life. I highly recommend anyone and everyone go see this piece of hallowed ground that hasn't changed much since the battle. From the steel cutouts to show where the troops were to the actual museum and gift shop. This battlefield was worth the drive to visit and pay respects to the men from both sides that fell there. I will definitely return at some point in the future.
  • So interesting to learn about all the history, I always pass by and love to see how well it is kept up and maintained. I always say a prayer as I pass and live it when I see all the flowers covering the many soldiers Graves and so glad they are not forgotten. I have a great respect for those who serve and protect and have served our great Country in whatever capacity! πŸ™πŸ’—πŸ₯°πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ™πŸ’—πŸ₯°πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ
