You certainly covered some ground to get these pictures, very informative.

My son and I left Cincinnati early in the morning and drove to the Chickamauga National Military Park in the spring of 2014. We visited the Chattanooga/Chickamauga sites, followed William Tecumseh Sherman's route from Ringgold to Jonesboro (Atlanta Campaign of 1864) and ended up at the Andersonville National Historic Site. We had an absolute blast!

Pvt. John Rikard was one of four brothers all of whom died in service. His brother, George Morgan Rikard, was killed here instantly. John was not as fortunate....

Thanks for sharing!
