My group, a bunch of old geezeers who met as college freshmen in 1964, takes a CW battlefield trip every year. Each year we alternate eastern theater to western... this year went to Gettysburg, Sharpsburg, Harpers Ferry and charles Town.... all for the 2nd time as a group...
It was an enjoyable trip, but next year we are going to Vicksburg and Shiloh... Aaaahhh my favorites.. When I am at Shiloh, I am home, and when at Vicksburg, I feel like I belong there too..

The western Theater has been overlooked for years, primarily because there was no Lee to romaticize...Bragg just doesn't do it for me! Forrest does but he does not command the serious attention that Lee does.. face it there is only one Marse Rob't.
