Hit the valley sites in october for a truly magnificent view
Thank God for that. I just wish that at the time these "improvements" are being thought of....consider the history of the place. This is a HUGE country with lotsa room!!!!!
I have no clue on what happened to my original post containing my YouTube video.
I deleted the original video and reposted the video. Weird.....
There are places like jamestown or colonial Williamsburg that are worth a look. wrong time period i know but a trip to the peninusula with all thats on it...lol
just a heads up if you have never been that there are 2 Jamestown sites. There is historic Jamestowne which is the actual location of the site, and next to it is the recreation site that has the 3 mock ships, an indian village etc. I would recommend the latter if you have kids. The actual site is pretty fun, there's lots of archeological work going on a continual basis.
There are well preserved Confederate earthworks near the digging site of the James Fort at the Jamestown National Park. They were built in 1861 as part of the defense system to block Federal penetration of the James River.
An excellent thread. Thanks for taking the time to share all this with us.
Is that the original stone wall at Fredericksburg??
The wall in front of the Innis House (my photo) is reconstructed. The only section of the original wall is located near the Ebert House Site and the Kirkland Monument.
From the NPS website.....
I will post a photo of the original stone wall when I get home from work.
Cool about Kelly's. Grew up in that neck of the woods, my avatar was there and most of these other battles with ANV. The Confederate trenches were in my brothers friends yard. I have melted lead from these trenches where they were making bullets. There were no markers there in the 70s. Never saw one anyway..
