The start of the hike, next to the visitor center. This statue of Stonewall Jackson looked like he was crafted to be in Fist of the North Star. It really gave me a chuckle.
Me blowing this cannon off toward Cassie’s face (Good thing she matrix dodged). So… wrong…
There were lots of horses out on this slightly rainy day. As we saw them in formation, off in the distance, I couldn’t help but imagine being in the 1860’s and seeing a confederate cavalry column trotting along.
Deep into the hike was this cemetery. It just looked like a stone wall from a distance and in this picture. There were mounds just filling the place.
It wouldn’t be a civil war battlefield or a hike in such a place without a few shots of some of the cannons. So, without further ado…
That building in the background is perhaps the only one still standing around the battlefields from the 1860’s. I wanted to prop it up on my back, but couldn’t get the angle just right on the photo. I guess it’ll have to stand up on its own.
And… the end of the hike outside the visitor center!
