It has been 150 years since the opening shots of the Civil War sounded, and since then snapshots of the battlefields have transported people into history, inspiring many to visit these sites, to walk on holy ground. The Civil War Trust is looking for today’s best photos of these sites during its 2011 Annual Photography Contest, currently underway through August 21,2011. Winners will be announced in September. Please visit www.civilwar.org/photos for rules and full details about the photo contest.
Many civil war sites offer great RV and camper parking. Although some battlefields require auto tours, so making those in a motor-home could be cumbersome to say the least. However you travel and enjoy the RVing lifestyle. Please take time to visit these great places that helped to shape our nation. And while you are there, stop for a moment to think about the thousands of men and women, that gave their lives during these great conflicts. And also for the ones who continue to do so till this day.
Safe Travels and Happy RVing!
