The fun part for me was visiting the First Minnesota memorial and re-enacting their march to Plum Run.

I also spent about as much time on Confederate Avenue as I did at the Angle and the Stone wall. Wonderful pictures at the Virginia and North Carolina memorials as well.

If you get a chance visit the Chickamanga Battle Field site, better than Gettysburg, very well maintained. Had a family member from the 4th Cav, Federal, who fought there, enlisted 1856.

Had another relative killed there with the 118th Illinois on Missionary Ridge after the main battle two of his brothers were there when Grant relieved Chattanooga.

My cousin fought at Antietem wih the CT 17th, they did well...for a while, but got pushed back

It was a thrill to see where they crossed the strem, Snaveley’s Ford, and their monument in Antietem

They went to Fredericksburgh but rested, they were too beat to fight there, and good thing, us Yankees got waxed there

he was wounded in north Carolina, went to a POW camp and died

he is buried in New Bern, North Carolina
