We 'did' the Civil War in the Gettysburg National Military Park, all those months ago in Pennsylvania and, at the end of the day, the same side lost the war.  So we were not sure it was worth another stop here.  But Mississippi was the heart of the Confederacy and the Mississippi River was so crucial to that war.  Turns out it was much of the same, but at least here, the thousands and thousands of men killed from Southern States are remembered equally.

It provided a good launch pad for a general discussion on war.  Have you ever tried explaining to a 5 and 7-year old why we do it?
