History Ingrained

There is a great deal of history in this town. It was a main holdout during the Civil war and Grant determined it needed to be taken to control the South. It took a lot of attempts on his part. The south fights hard. The old town area and the national park/cemetary/monuments are the shining sites to see.

A Sad Time to remember

The layout of the battlefield and the monuments describing each stage of the battle were interesting. In addition, I liked the ironside that was on the park. The most fabulous impact was the commenorations and plaques that described each state and its sacrifice of men form eahc one.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The park is the anchor for the history of this city
  • Cons:Not as much antiquity as I would have liked
  • In a nutshell:It is nice to see the Civil War era, rest around it is --
