Not even 10 minutes from our house is a huge Battlefield which is where the battle took place during the Civil War July 21, 1861. I love Civil war history (mainly Gone With the Wind) but I still love learning what I can. We took the kids to this "park" and walked and explored. It was awesome and the kids walked over 4 miles and didn't fuss (much). We took a horse trail to the river and saw the treasured blue bells in bloom. Absolutely breathtaking. Of course, I couldn't help but think of Bonnie Blue... (I love GWTW). Here are pictures from our wonderful adventure. Can't wait to go back.
