    Thanks for posting the photos! One of the things on our to-do list is to visit some of the battlefields.
    Too damn many bikes to list

    Looks like fun. I lived in VA in my youth and adolecence and loved the Civil War (War of Northern Aggression) historical locations that abound there. While in the Army and assigned to Ft. Monroe, VA we lived in the quarters Robert E. Lee occupied in 1839. Lee's first child was born in our bedroom at the time.

    Who won at the Wilderness this time?

    End of the Battle of the Wilderness and the beginning of the Battle of Spotsylvania

    Grant sidestepped the Army of North Virginia and began the footrace to to the next strategic site, Spotsylvania. Lee had his army march all night and just arrived ahead of the Army of the Potomac. There the bloodbath continued.
