Yeah. We really need to go see it sometime too. I take it you have been there....so what was the most memorable part for you?
Walking the Battlefield.
The trenches are still visible under the grass.
Thanks FRiend! :-)
We just went to that museum this morning. It was great. Thanks for bringing it up in conversation the other day so I was reminded about it. :-) *hugs*
AH! NOW YOU WILL HAVE TO CHECK OUT THE VIRGINIAN MARINERS MUSEUM, JUST UP THE STREET A FEW MILES (Towards Williamsburg)
Btw, thanks for the info and tips FRiend.
