The gentleman that owned Crooked Creek near Cullman Alabama passed away, the museum collection was sold and the land is for saleOff the top of my head.
Good mental exercise.
Kernstown (1 and 2)
Bull Run (1 and 2)
Forrest’s Murfreesboro Raid
Sulphur Creek Trestle
The news article that I read when the gentleman passed away stated that the land was mortgaged and the museum's contents had been given to a dealer for disposal.I had heard his daughter was trying to keep the land and most of the collection together and stay open?
Believe it or not, even though it's pretty deep into the mountains McDowell is still in Virginia, as is Monterrey which is even farther west along that highway. However, only a little north of Monterrey the state line makes a jog and therefore puts the town of Franklin in West Virginia even though it's farther to the east than either of the others! (Following his victory at McDowell Jackson pursued Milroy and Schenk to Franklin where Fremont joined them.)Off the top of my head...
Manassas (First/Second)Post them here! I am only posting those which still have some semblance of interpretation or preserved areas:
Cross Keys/Port Republic
Beaver Dam Creek
Spotsylvania Court House
North Anna River
New Market (briefly, as a child)
Petersburg (including Crater/Fort Stedman)
Globe Tavern/Ream's Station
Final Petersburg Assaults (Pamplin Park)
Fort Sumter (as a child)
Champion Hill (although I did not take the tour over the private land where most of the fighting occurred)
Mobile Bay/Forts Gaines and Morgan (as a child)
Chickamauga is by far the biggest one that I have yet to visit. I'd also like to make it out to Perryville at some point, too.
The road to McDowell battlefield is basically a one way drive but the scenery is beautiful. The battlefield itself is one of the toughest battlefield hikes I've ever made. I'm in pretty good shape and was worn out by the time I made it to the top.Believe it or not, even though it's pretty deep into the mountains McDowell is still in Virginia, as is Monterrey which is even farther west along that highway.
