The focus of posts will be my Civil War travels with a healthy dose of Shiloh related research.

Near the visitor's center in Rome are these three markers for the Atlanta campaign.
And on the hill above the markers are these cannon.
They look nice but these were my first encounter with fiberglass cannon. If you knock on the cannon instead of hurting your hand you hear a hollow sound. It makes sense for town memorials but I'm not a fan of it on battlefields (I've run into these at one national park).
