In May 1864, two armies clashed in a desperate struggle for the course of our nation's history. The Battle of the Wilderness was a great turning point of the Civil War -- the first clash between Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant and the beginning of the end for the beleaguered Confederacy.

I was just there a few years ago. I was shocked that there was so much development encroaching on the battlefields. A major highway runs right through it.

OTOH, that entire area is really part of the historic battlefield. The armies were huge and spread out. They camped and sniped at each other for a long time while a certain general dithered.
