    I felt pretty good about this one! We've got about 2/3 of them covered and will hopefully add Chickamauga to the list soon.

      Thanks for sharing. I've been to all, but two - so far.

        Visiting Shiloh again this upcoming summer, along with Chickamauga/Chattanooga for the first time. Since school's in for the 150th Chickamauga, I will probably have to miss it next year even though I really want to go.

          The Child Bride and I visited Chattanooga on one of our road trips a handful of years ago and liked the area a lot. The return later in the fall is to explore it as a retirement location.

            Does anyone recognize the building shown for Shiloh? I don't recall seeing it when I visited last April.

              I had the honor of visiting (once) Chickamauga. It is a very beautiful park. There is also a very little known 6th Cavalry Museum right near the entrance.
