The 21 Challenge - Day 3

Did you watch "Who do you think you are?" last night? Matthew Broderick found out that his great-grandfather was killed in the American Civil War. This reminded me that I had not created a layout of my visit in June, last year to Shiloh, Tennessee. This was the site of a major Civil War battle - it lasted just 2 days, 6-7th April, 1862. There was 23,746 casualties (both sides) out of 109,784 men. Monuments are erected where the troops were located and a star shows that a General died on that spot. This was a very insightful visit and you could not not be moved by the experience.
I have purposely kept the page simple - just a replica musket rifle (don't worry it is just a pen).
