First battlefield was Gettysburg in the summer of 83 (I think).  I was 6 and my family took a trip from Colorado over to Washington D.C. and Gettysburg.  I was young and it was a long trip in the mini van.  I do remember the feeling that surrounded the place and knowing lots of men died there.  I still need to study more about that battle.

The one I remember more is Vicksburg when I was around 13.  I was older and I was aware my gggrandpa had been there.  It had more of an impact on me.

I would like to take my family and visit these places now as an adult.
