    This is such a great thing you are doing…Makes me think of my ancestors who were willing to go without food for days…Go into battle with faulty weapons…Who complained little and went years without seeing their loved ones…I am sure the kids will be so very excited to learn about how the great ones did it…I will be checking on you site each and every day.

    Lion Brett,
    I understand what you are going through. A couple of years ago I took my Boy Scout troop to Gettysburg. We hiked the Johnny Reb trail. Until you do soimething like that you don’t have a true appreciation of the miles Lee’s troops had to march just to get into the battle lines. A car trip just doesn’t convey the distances and hardships.
