In order to do proper research for my novels, or because of reenacting, or mostly for just plain fun and adventure, I have visited almost every major battlefield east of the Mississippi at least once, including Vicksburg & Fort Donelson, and some multiple times, like Franklin, Shiloh, Chickamauga, Stones River, Antietam, Harpers Ferry, pretty much all of the Virginia ones multiple times, but Gettysburg reigns supreme. I have visited it at least 45-50 times now, and I never tire of it. I always learn or see something new! We have walked it and driven over it at all different times of day and evening. I have been at the Angle at exactly the time Pickett's Charge took place on July 3rd on the 145th anniversary, etc. I have re-created the charge with my friends and pards. I have climbed up Little Round Top and Devil's Den, Culp's Hill in the daytime and evening, East Cavalry Field, etc. and we have witnessed some sights purely unexplained by science. To me, this is a very sacred place, and the spirits live on there. I never tire of visiting it. It is because of some of those experiences that I will NOT go out there on the battlefield at night.
