We never took the kids to the battlefields when we lived in Georgia previously. #2 Son was 4, and the Children's Museum kept his attention. Now he's interested in tactics, and so it was a fun day crawling the fields at Chickamauga. We have a summer of other day trips to do now.
Gas is $3.12 a gallon in Dalton. Wow.
The BBQ Shack just outside the entrance to the battlefield is insanely inexpensive. $3.50 for #2 Son's jumbo pulled pork sandwich. Decently good food no matter what, but the deal of the century considering the price.
My camera's "panorama" mode is pretty cool for photographing battlefields. I'll post one tomorrow, but I expect I will do this on all our battlefield trips.
