While Sandra's at home watching the B&B and hoping not to shovel snow, I'm touring battlefields en route to Atlanta for the PAII conference. First stop was Franklin, TN, where Gen. Hood ruined his army. A very spiritual place for me, as my great-grandfather W.L.Truman was there. See his memoir. First picture (from bottom reading upward)is McGavock Cemetery where most of the Confederates who fell in that battle were buried. Second is of the Carter house, focus of much of the fighting.
Friday I visited Muefreesboro battlefield (Stones River to Yankees). The wrecked cannon was in an area called the "Slaughter Pen" - and you can see how odd & rugged that part of the battlefield was. Then I went to Chickamauga, but took no pictures.
Last stop was New Echota State Hist. Site (GA) - Cherokee Capitol until the removal, restored. Picture taken thru a wavy-glass window.
Today it's off to Allatoona & Kennesaw where Missouri Brigade was deeply involved.
