|I visited the Perryville Battlefield this past weekend. Due to a bad knee I was pretty restricted in seeing everything. But I was able to walk up and down Loomis Heights. I saw the 42nd Indiana marker which was pretty cool because I had 3 ancestors in that regiment. Standing on the very ground that they were on when the SHTF was pretty neat. I was able to move around some on the field but I know I missed a lot of the field. Imagining those fields full of about 10,000 casualties was something. I've started reading Perryville: Havoc of Battle. Reading the book and having gone to the battlefield gives you an extra sense of what was going on. I plan on making another trip back if my knee ever heals up. Anyway if anybody is thinking of going its worth it.
