Playing Tourist

Last Sunday we decided to play tourist in our new surroundings. We visited a battleground literally right down the street from us. Very cool.

This one is known as "The Dictator" It shot motors over 2 miles away, During the Civil War.

 Replica of a meeting place for soldiers.

"The Crater" During the War they exploded a mine here that caused a huge crater in the earth. Then a huge battle ensued. I think they said like over 4,000 people died at this site.


  1. Very intresting and very neat to see.

  2. What a cool place to visit! Glad you're getting into your new locale!

  3. Very historic site. My husband would love to see that canon. :)

  4. That is awesome! We're getting ready to go to a reenactment for the first time next weekend. This has been a year filled with learning about the Civil War and I am IN LOVE!!!
