There are many monuments honoring different states and troops.
After leaving the battlefield, we headed for Townsend, TN - "The Peaceful Side of the Smokies". On the way we decided to get off of the interstate and take "the road less traveled". We stopped in Athens, TN for lunch at Buddy's Bar-B-Q - good and cheap! The rain finally stopped and we continued on our back roads with minimal traffic. The trees are changing here and it is pretty even on an overcast day. When we got to Townsend, we found the rental agency, checked in, and then drove about 5 miles to our cabin.
Trinity's Hideaway has everything we need and more - porches, hot tub, fireplace, WiFi, 3 TVs, and a washer and dryer. We are up in the mountains a little and overlook a golf course. Tonight we are just sitting watching TV and listening to the rain. It's a little after 7 - think maybe I'll do a little quilting - it is Thursday night!
