“We Americans have never lost a war.” is rather amazing statement I always believed growing up as a Yankee East Coaster. Yet, Southerners have a sense of defeat which none of the rest of the country has. It is evident in the battlefields throughout Tennessee, especially here at Shiloh. A very somber place with mass burial sites and gravestone markers.
Drove down aways to see the final resting place of Lewis from the Fmaous Lewis and Clark Expedition, who explored and mapped out the great expansion towards the West through a number of rivers. They include the Ohio River, Tennessee River, Missouri River and Columbia River.
