Tour Notes

This stone lies at the fot of the new veterans monument, and gets little respect. Grass and dirt obscure the inscription. I attempted to find online resources about the General Lyon post of W.R.C. and found nothing. It is unfortunate that the efforts of these women to honor and assist the old Civil War veterans is being left behind as faded history.

Your assistance is needed

Can you offer a place to pitch my tent? One of the largest expenses of this tour is camping and lodging fees. I usually arrive at my campsite just before dusk and depart prior to 8:30 AM. Click on the "Contact" menu option to send me a message.
