Moved along on this photography outing. This time made my way to some of the Battlefields. This is Cold Harbor Battlefield - During the two week period June 4-12 1864 along the Totopotomoy and at Cold Harbor, the Federal army lost 12,000 killed, wounded, missing and captured while the Confederates suffered almost 4,000 casualties.

    I like the feel here, peaceful, serene....a good place to reflect!

    In spite of its history of gunfire in battles of the past it is a very quiet looking place now where as Betty said you could reflect...(and shoot peaceful pictures.)

    Doesn't look like the trees offered much protection. Nice shot!

    Hallowed ground. This is a lovely place now. It is a wonderful photo of a land which took the lives of so many in such a cruel war. Now it is at last a beautiful place of peace and tranquility!

    Wonderful image of this battlefield. I have a relative (on my father's side) who was killed at the battle of Cold Harbor. I've visited it often and imagine that I feel the spirits of all those lost souls.
