My first battlefield visit was Gettysburg when I was 8. Before then, all I knew of the town was the Wal-Mart. I still have a picture of my sister and I on a boulder at Big Round Top. I came to school the next day and absorbed everything I could from the books in the library. I've been addicted ever since. Ole, it's a shame that many of my generation take such a disinterest in history. Hopefully when I have kids I'll be able to get them into it.
