The National Park Service turns 100 this year! Since it is offically Spring I urge everyone to get out an visit a local park or battlefield. Of course I love visiting the battlefields. There is nothing else that compares to the peace I feel when I step onto those hallowed grounds. Also on April 12th the 155th anniversaries of the Civil War begin starting at Fort Sumter and will end at Appomattox Court House in 2020 so plenty of time to visit one of the hundreds of battlefields on their anniversaries.
