Civil War Swamps
Admittedly, I don’t often think about this, but I have so much respect for those that fought in the Civil War(well, actually all wars, but I’m specifically thinking about the Civil War today). After driving to Williamsburg and back yesterday through what used to be battlefields (and this thought came right as we passed Mechanicsville(what Yankees call Cold Harbour). It’s pretty much fields surrounded by swamp. Yesterday was gorgeous, and even then I would not want to trudge through the fields and swamps all over the east coast. It’s amazing to me what they went through.
