    Fort Mitchell National Cemetery,Fort Mitchell,AL:

    https://www.cem.va.gov/cems/nchp/ftmitchell.asp

    I was in Phenix City,AL/Columbus,GA on 6/21/2018 on a Civil War sightseeing trip and had about an hour to kill in between planned site visits. Until I got to Phenix City,I hadn't realized that Fort Mitchell National Cemetery was so close. It was only about 10 minutes away,so I made a quick run over there.

    Andersonville National Cemetery - 6/22/2018

    In May and June I read a coupla books about Andersonville prison. Started planning a trip to southern Georgia last year. I'll probably post quite a few pics from this national cemetery. It is out in th Georgia sticks. I got there at 8am on a Friday morning and had the place to myself. I didn't plan it that way,but I started out in the oldest part of the cemetery.

    Yes I did hear about that. Stuff like that shows up in my Google feed when I surf in. No doubt there are others still buried on the field in Gettysburg.
