Yes, I think we will participate in some of the hikes on the 6th. I will let you know what we think. We are very excited. He turns 4 in April but this will be his 2nd trip to Shiloh. I have toured most of the major and minor battlefields in the Western Theater and have been to Chickamauga a dozen times or so. As you can imagine Chickamauga holds a certain family connection for me, but Shiloh is indeed a treasure. Thanks for the welcome, Perry.
I look forward to chatting with you all. Shiloh Battlefield was the first battlefield I had the pleasure of touring. I was a small boy but remember that first visit as much as my last. I have been back many times and hope to return on it's anniversary next month along with my son. I have a Civil War lineage through my Great Great Grandfather from the 98th Illinois Mounted Infantry (Wilder's Brigade).
