What a great thread.  Thanks to all of you who have shared your battlefield visit experiences.  Now I don't think I am such a nut for wanting to walk battlefields by myself.  There is just something about being there on the field and seeing the things you have read about all of your life and thinking about what went through the minds of the soldiers who fought and died.

Maybe that is why Shiloh is probably my favorite battlefield.  Most of the year it is so quiet and serene.  I have walked it three times and learned something new each visit.  (except I don't like the ticks!)
