12 Fascinating Civil War Sites-- Part 1: Don't Miss

From the September 4, 2012, CNN by Ann Shields. These are other sites that you might not have heard of, even Civil buffs. //// 1. GETTYSBURG, PA-- The battlefield, but, Don't Miss the 250-year-old Fairfield Inn, 8 miles west of town. They recreate a three-course meal eaten by Robert E. Lee during the Confederate retreat. I'll have the Lee Special. //// 2. WASHINGTON D.C.-- Of course, the Lincoln memorial, Ford's Theatre and the Petersen House and the African-American Museum. But, Don't Miss Lincoln's Cottage at Soldier's Home where Lincoln and his family stayed from June to November during which time, Lincoln commuted to the Oval office daily. Located four miles from the White House. //// More to Come. --Old Secesh
