Civil War battlefields; more than a dozen rides and resources

 

Gene Bisbee always has a line on bicycle touring. Now now you can cycle the Civil War monuments.–Corrie

 

Over the next four years, we’ll probably be the ones bombarded with memorials and re-enactments of the famous battles in what filmmaker Ken Burns called “the greatest war in American history.”

If this encourages you to visit one of the battlefields, you might want to consider doing so on a bicycle. I found that riding my bicycle in those places gave me a better feel for the human scale of the battle and the horror faced by the soldiers.
