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.
We started at the Crossroads and then made our way up to the top of the hill. Because of connectivity issues, we shot the segment in two parts (one and two).
