What’s your favorite Summer Battlefield Tour pick?
Harper’s Ferry- is “cool” in the summer!
Have been to Perryville and one of my fave fields to visit. My tip for battlefield visiting this summer would be Monocacy Battlefield in Maryland. They have done a fine job down there upgrading the facilities, and would make for a fine stop for anyone who finds themselves in the area between Sharpsburg and Gettysburg. Well worth the stop, IMHO.
Hope all is well.
Regards from the Garden State,
Right on about Perryville and the battlefield there. Nicely rural and quiet (Lexington’s suburbs a good 50 miles and decades, if not centuries, away). A hand-painted, oversized map in the visitor center is worth the price of admission alone. Not to mention the site is a hop, skip and a jump from Kentucky bourbon trail stops at Oscar Pepper and Old Taylor distilleries, which surely must have been Bragg’s real objective those dry days and not some dirty creek water. (And even if not, they should have been.)
I remain your humble servant,
Shiloh and Chickamauga are two of my favorites. As a visitor you are rewarded each time you visit by the lessons of the battles fought there. They are both extremely beautiful and well preserved. They help bring the American Civil War of the Western front to life.
