Oddly I had no trouble and am about 100 pp. (of 700+) into the G. F. R. Henderson Stonewall Jackson I bought at Adairsville. (Up to Falling Waters in 1861.) But I expect it'll take me a month at least to finish it!From July - Monday last week,I read 4 books and 3 Blue & Gray Magazines on Chickamauga, Chattanooga, Dalton and Resaca. Tonight, I started reading a book about a small battle in western Arkansas. It was really hard to make myself start reading about something other than the Chickamauga/Chattanooga and Atlanta Campaigns.
Very nice. It was a little misty and overcast when we went there on Friday afternoon and it looked completely different.View attachment 209452
Another Confederate Cemetery we visited on Wednesday that has been featured here in the forum before was this one at Resaca on a plot of land a short distance behind the Confederate lines as described on the historical marker below.

Although most of the graves contain unknown dead, a few have been grouped into sections by state like that marked by the Georgia Monument below.

We were here before back in 2014 and visited the tiny Resaca Pocket Park or wayside above and the nearby Confederate Cemetery and drove the short road along the northern portion of the Confederate lines but had to wait until Sunday and the return trip to finally see the Resaca Battlefield Park:Very nice. It was a little misty and overcast when we went there on Friday afternoon and it looked completely different.
Actually, it was on the very next day, Thursday, when we ran into @archieclement, @Booner, and @rebel brit! Unfortunately they had just finished up the tour but Mike and I were given a very full one of the tunnel, Austin House, and reproduction general store.… Lemme say this as a Civil War Traveler's Companion tip: Even though their website says they are open until 5pm,if you want to take the Railroad Tunnel tour then get there before 4pm. If you just wanna visit the Museum,don't wait until 4:30pm to get there. The last Railroad Tunnel tour started at about 3:45pm and it goes right to the Clisby Austin House aterwards. It was about 4:35ish when we returned to the Museum. I had wanted to go back in the Museum for a few minutes but it was locked. I had seen reviews on TripAdvisor and Facebook to the effect that sometimes they close up shop early with no notice or reasons given but I didn't wanna believe it. I know it's true now because I saw it with my own eyes. As I was leaving James N. and @mkyzzzrdet pulled into the parking lot. I believe they went back on Sunday afternoon after our tour ended.
That's right. Now I remember you telling me that.
