    A very interesting site listing every major engagement fought during the Civil War.

    I was surprised that there were battles fought in places as far afield as North Dakota and Idaho!

    Myself, I've only visited one, 'Peachtree Creek' in Georgia.

    What a coincidence.... last night I was watching an episode of Ken Burns "Civil War" series. (A fantastic addition to anyones DVD colllection).

    I have been to Antietam and Gettysburg.

    Chris were you ever stationed in Va? Fort AP Hill maybe? We lived in Fredericksburg when I was stationed at Quantico... saw that site. We were supposed to do a hump down... orange turnpike and plank road... where the confederates marched in the battle at chancellorsville... but that got cancelled... that was the only hump I was ever excited for.

    Yeap I was stationed in VA back in 2000. Spent about 7 months at Fort Eustis, VA when I was doing my Blackhawk training.

    When at Eustis, you probably went to Newport News Park, Adler? It is full of overgrown redoubts and trenchworks. (And copperhead snakes.)
    There were also many Revolutionary War trenches in the King's Mill area
    of Williamsburg. I did a lot of metal detecting there before it was paved over
    and covered with houses...I don't even recognize the area anymore.

    Actually you are right I did go to Newport News. It is right down the road from Fort Eustis along with Yorktown and Hampton Roads.

    Longstreet's Corps also used the Orange Plank Road in the counter attack at the Wilderness in 1864. I have been to Glorieta Pass as well as Mansfield and Palmito Ranch.
