A family wedding in Charleston, South Carolina provided a reason for being in the Southeast. Afterward, my fiancé, Janie Brock, and I embarked on a quick, hard-hitting tour of as many Civil War battlefields as possible in four-plus days. Since we included the spot where the first shots were fired at Fort Sumter, we were one up on my Aunt Rosemary who joined us in Richmond, Virginia. Here, as well as other stops along the way, we used an excellent Park Service map to visit seven battlefields including Gaines’ Mill and Cold Harbor. . .
