86/365 Spotsylvania Battlefield


One of the biggest attractions of our area is the civil war battlefield. This was a very bloody battle. Men fought at the bloody angle in hand to hand combat. In some areas the bodies piled up 5 deep. Today this is where we run and you can feel something deep within as you run through there. Across the main road is the cemetery where over 700 soldiers are buried. It makes the civil war so real. An interesting fact, when I did a geneology on my husbands family a year ago, I discovered that one of his great great relatives from North Carolina fought at this exact battlefield. He went AWOL after this particular battle and rejoined a year later. In the time he was gone his wife had my husbands ancestor. Now we live right here. So funny what a small world we live in.
