Thank you so much!

I would go to Vicksburg 1st. Then Andersonville. Then Bennett Place. Then Lookout Mountain. Then Sumpter. Then Appomattox. Then the ones in Virginia. Then Gettysburg. Gettysburg takes 2-3 Days. I would then go to WV trail. Add in Harper's Ferry. Lookout Mountain and Chickamauga are closer to each other. Harpers Ferry is an hour from DC. I did not give you the sites in Kentucky and Tennessee. Johnson City, TN was Union. Inside the Soldiers and Sailors Monument are the 10,000 names of soldiers from Cuyahoga County. It was designed and funded by the 103rd Ohio Volunteer Regiment. It is a few blocks from The Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. Eat dinner on 4th St. There is a Hyatt near by. My niece was at Gettysburg this summer. I would also go to Hersey, PA. They saw the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia. I went to the Art Museums in Philadelphia as a child.
