to visit a bluegrass music friend who has a place near Somerset KY ..
he knew I had an interest in Civil War things so he drove us out to
the nearby Mill Springs battlefield .. we visited Zollicoffer Park,
where General Z was killed (January 19, 1862) and where some 200
Confederates are buried in a mass grave .. the park is very well kept
and they recently placed some beautifully arranged headstones at the
gravesite .. apparently there are often re-enactments staged and they
are building a new museum nearby .. it is a wonderful memorial .. we
didn't have much time to further explore the area, but I was deeply
impressed with what I did see .. if you are ever in the area, it would
be well worth your time to visit the battlefield and the beautiful
little park ..
