“…conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”Abraham Lincoln. 11/19/1863
These walls could talk about the Civil War and burning of the bridge right outside that south-facing window. I suppose they could also talk about all the furry little mammals running/flying around in this room. Kinda gross, but this is the kind of Urbex stuff I’d love to start doing.
If you knew what you were looking at you could see almost the entire course of yesterday’s Battlefield Half Marathon.
I know the saying – “The early bird gets the worm” – but it’s so much harder this time of year. I suppose the payoff is worth it. And also, I don’t like worms.
A little course recon this morning for the Battlefield 1/2 this weekend. Hope the weather forecast is good for Saturday morning cuz I’m hoping to get some good running aerials.
I’ll have to admit, I’ve never really been into history. But I sure do find it fascinating there are still so many reenactments of various battles all throughout this area. I’m actually determined to attend some of the larger ones later this year – mainly for the awesome photographic opportunities (but perhaps I’ll learn something new along the way). The oldest one in the nation is actually this weekend at New Market Battlefield in Virginia.
Anyway, since I was in Leesburg today I figured I’d take a little side trip to Ball’s Bluff to get the Civil War “juices’ flowing.
