    Need a Route Plan to hit all Confederacy

    I wanted some help to find what the most efficient route would be to touch all 11 states of the confederacy. They would be Va, NC, SC, TN, Ga, FL, Al, LA, MS, AR, TX. I would like to start or end somewhere around atlanta. I would also like to keep it to a bunburner IBA length ride, or around 1500 miles. I have a route that is just under 1800 miles so far.
    Thanks
    Ron

    Sorry no route , but when you swing thru Florida, try to see Olustee Battlefield Historic State Park. It's small, but one of a very few CW sites in Florida, plus it's north near the GA line.

    Shiloh

    Make sure you come to Shiloh in West Tennessee near the Mississippi line. It's probably the best National Park Battlefield in the whole system. It's in a very rural area and pretty much undisturbed. Go to the headquarters and get the automobile tour brochure and take it on your bike or walk. It's a beautiful place.

    Natl Battlefield sites

    I like Kennesaw Mountain ('we killed Bishop Polk yesterday and had a good day today') and Chicamauga also. but Shiloh is easier to walk around than both of those.
