Off to Georgia today, just south of Chattanooga, where the locals are a little stubborn about just exactly what was fought there, 150 years ago, and still call it "The War of Northern Aggression."
Grant's troops, behind General Joseph Hooker, scaled the rugged edges of Lookout Mountain to score a victory by breaking the lock on the river in the "battle above the clouds."
But we're not going for the war. We're off to reconnoiter with the siblings, the first bivouac since Mom died.
Be back Friday. Do us a favor and warm up the weather while we're gone.
