Was truly amazing to see where the biggest battle blunder in US military history took place. Unfortunately, much of the battlefield is covered in houses so a bit hard to picture in the minds eye. However our park ranger did a great job.
The infamous stone wall where the Confederates hid and slaughtered the Union troops coming at them in waves.
This house was in the line of fire but managed to survive. The scars of war are very evident.
Afterwards we drove into Richmond and visited the Confederate White House and the Confederate Civil War museum where we got to see the personal effects of many famous confederate generals.
General Robert E. Lee's hat.
Lieutenant General A.P. Hill's vest, gun and sword.
Some of Robert E. Lee's personal effects.
Jeb Stuart - most famous Confederate Calvary officer
This regimental flag was made from a donated wedding shawl from a southern lady.
Huge portrait of Robert E. Lee and "Stonewall" Jackson.
Widow's weeds.The sheer amount of black that must have been worn during this time period would have been astounding to see.
