I'm back from lovely Ft. Lee VA. Our first class lodging is shown at left (I excrement you not).
I also got my first ever chance to tour Civil War battlefields. These placards (you may remember one of my very first posts were about those types of things) were from the Battle of Gaines Mill June 1862. We also toured Petersburg and Cold Harbor (both 1864). I was surprised by the size of the battlefields (they were much larger and more wooded than I exptected) and the size of The Crater (it was much smaller than I had imagined).
