We capped off the day with a visit to Champion Hill on the 155th anniversary of the battle. As a historian, it’s always a special treat for me to walk a battlefield on the anniversary of the battle.
Kris White and Connor Townsend and I were joined once again by Parker Hills and by the guy who wrote the book on the battle, Tim Smith. I admit, I was in full “Civil War Nerd” mode to be out on the field, on the anniversary, with some of the world’s greatest experts on the battle. It was awesome.
