    Its been over a year.
    I never did hit them all because they are so spread out from each other, I hit almost all of the ones on the east coast.
    I will try to hit the rest I didn't see on my trip next week up the middle part of the country.
    Hopefully they are all still there.
    Any suggestions?

    I highly recommend:

    Battlefield Military Museum
    Speros Marinos & Co
    900 Baltimore Pike
    Gettysburg, PA 17325-7083
    Phone: (717) 334-6568

    It is a private museum displaying items from the American Civil War, as well as WWI and WWII. It is a large brick building at the base of Culp's Hill with a tracked vehicle out front. If you are researching uniforms, equipment, or even musical instruments this is the place to visit. It is a block or two away from the entrance to the Gettysburg visitor's center. Visit it while you can before the park service .... I'll leave it to your imagination.

    Nice exhibits at the New Market battlefield in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Don't forget the USS Constellation in Baltimore Harbor either.

    It's sad. Nobody mentioned the new Visitor's Center at Gettysburg. That's where they put thousands of artifacts in the basement, where they can't be seen without an appointment. Of course, if you want to see a bunch of repop uniforms and equipment, it's the place to go.
