I’ve FINALLY got the “vlog” uploaded to YouTube! If you have 2 hours to kill and want to learn some Civil War stuff, here ya go! Pictures can’t do it justice, but I’ll put the picture collages below for each location I visited.
It was an amazing trip, packed with memories I’ll cherish forever. I call it a pilgrimage because it’s been both an adventure and a huge watershed event for me. The biggest fears were that I’d have an anxiety/panic attack and freeze up at some point along the trip. Thankfully, that didn’t happen. Quite the opposite. I’ve become a little braver. I’ve proved to myself that I can travel and make decisions for myself without freaking out, since Jared didn’t come along with me. It’s so liberating to realize that I can finally do the things I love without being afraid. Wanna hear more? Check out the video!
When looking through these photos, if you see a haversack (tan/off-white messenger bag), these are markers or locations I was specifically looking for because they have significance in my newest historical paranormal release, The Soldier.
