Been to Shiloh; been to Antietam. Have so far avoided G'burg, but I guess I'll have to go walk around the fast food joints to see it. But I don't think I can capture the same silence at G'burg that I got at Shiloh and Antietam. Do go by yourself or with a respectful friend. The effect is awesome.

Even the Confederate burial trenches at Shiloh will urge one to sit and think about those interred within. Nevermind the monuments. The ultimate monuments are those trenches.
