Strategic firing pointNational CemetaryDover HotelFacing the river, waiting for the NorthDuring our History time we had been reading a book called Across Five Aprils. In the story a young boy during Civil War times shares his life and anxiously reads about a battle and surrender in Dover, TN.  

We were able to visit this beautiful state park on our trip to KY. IT was with s sober heart that we enjoyed our surroundings, had a picnic and kept the lookout for eagles—always remembering how many people died there. It was a strange experience to have fun, with paying respect to the fallen.  THought I would share a few pictures.
