I thought the reason Castle Pinkney was allowed to fall into ruin is because the island is some sort of wildlife refuge for snail darters or spotted owls or bowhead whales or something like that. Touch one brick there and PFFFFT! An entire species dies off!
Such a twist of fate! Where the 54th Mass first fought can now be found a commercial enterprise that should constantly reminds us why white people should never again be allowed to choose the name of a grocery store chain.
And the Battle of Sol-Legare battlefield (the first time the 54 saw action from the movie Glory) is now a Piggly Wiggly.

"...I'm struck by the contradiction at the core of Civil War reenacting. On the surface it's a hyper-macho hobby, focused on guns and battle. But the longer I hang out with hardcores ... the more they remind me of supermodels, chatting endlessly about their jackets and shoes and hair and how many pounds they've lost since the last event." - Tony Horwitz
