Little Round Top, July 2, 1863

I’ve been to any number of historic sites and battlefields. Some, like the battlefield at Gettysburg are heavy with history and loss.
There’s something in the air there, you can actually *feel* the battle’s residue there; or at least, I did.

Little Round Top was the only place that I can think of that I’ve visited like this where all the visitors – young and old alike – were quite somber and reflective. Kids weren’t fighting with their brothers, babies weren’t screaming bloody murder and everyone talked in whispers.
If you stop and listened; and got quiet – you could hear things in the wind.
This place remains one of the most powerful spots I’ve ever visited in my various travels and it’s something every American needs to see.
