It’s Raining on my Vacation

It’s raining outside.  Today begins the family vacation.  Are we there yet?  Historical destinations.  Battlefields, hallowed ground, tourists with fanny packs trampling over heroes scattered in the ground.  At least there is no casino.  The rain actually sets the scene for a somber visit to a sad place where so many very young men lost their lives.  The Civil War.  The War Between the States.  My father never let me forget that we were from the South.
