Hi everybody,

This spring we visited Manassas, Kennesaw Mountain and also saw Lee's burial site and Stonewall's grave.  Our greatest feat was locating Longstreet's grave as it was getting dark and with absolutely no idea of where it might be. My friends think I'm crazy, but my husband and I likely will revisit Gettysburg for our 20th wedding anniversary this year, and I hope to also see South Mountain and the medical museum in Frederick (I think) MD. Finally, we will travel to Maine to see Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain's house.

In Connecticut, we don't have a heck of a lot of sites to see, but Sedgewick's grave is on the west side of the state and is a nice stop. In the northeast corner, we have Nathaniel Lyon's grave. If anyone is ever up here, please feel free me to email me for directions to Lyon's grave ... it is quite rundown but still worth visiting.

Regards to all, Rhonda
