Tim, I agree that we probably talked to the same folks,but several years apart. I have not been back in 2 years, and that conversation dates back to about 2004 or so..the grass on the south loop is beautiful, and when we were there, there was a disturbance on the hillside... backhoe there... our guide, when asked what was going on, said that some bones had probably been found. they find them all the time.
It's unfortunate, but the govt did what they thought was best in the '30's... turned out is was not the best solution and now we have groups with competing interests at work. I would come down on the side of making the field look like a battlefield instead of a primal forest. There are lots of forests ( and I am a lover of forests and the wild), but there are very few places like Vicksburg.
BTW, the very same fight goes on at Gettysburg.. they have to thin timber during the winter when onbody is lookin!
