year. I did post a couple of thoughts at the time but they appear to
have gotten lost in some of the strangeness occurring at that time.
As far as the battlefield goes, it is extremely well maintained. The
day I visited, there were several groundskeepers out and about, but
only a couple of other visitors. They have a map in the VC which
indicates the acquisitions of ground for the park. Amazing amount of
acquisition. They are now up to over 20 stops.
I was able to cover most of the field within about 2 hrs. of walking.
There are placards at each of the stops which are informative. I
also brought along the tour guide from the Perryville issue of Blue
I definitely recommend the park to anyone who is in the area.
