One of the perks I have is living very close to Fort Donelson Battlefield. So I get to visit often. I go early in the morning. My great-great Grandfather was in the 49th Tenn infantry Regiment assigned garrison duty. They did best they could cleaning up the vandalism to the monument. When I walked up the hill where Buckner stood his ground, the morning wildlife was there watching me.
