As I drove past the historical brown sign on the highway I thought it sounded familiar but couldn't place it. Until the next exit. I turned around and wasn't disappointed. My Great Great Grandfather died at Belle Grove and although today it doesn't look like the Civil War battlefield it was then, its a wonderful view. I hope you enjoy.
