Road Trip

We're beginning preparations for a little road trip, a drive from here to the Charlotte, North Carolina area to see our newest grandson, his two brothers, and of course, the kids. It looks to be an easy drive barring unusual weather or oddities of road construction, only a thousand miles. In our younger days we could make that in one long day, now we'll take two, maybe three. It will depend on what we stop to look at. I doubt we'll need more than two or three hundred rounds of ammunition for a short little trip like this. We may take a day trip up to Washington, DC so as to visit our money.

We've never been that far east in the southern part of the country, the furthest we've been in that area was when we toured the battlefields of Shiloh, Vicksburg and some of the smaller ones from The War of Yankee Aggression, as some southerners still call it. I have ancestors who wore Blue in that fight so, to me it's the Civil War, though from what I understand, it wasn't all that civil.

Any suggestions on must-see attractions on the route would be very welcome.
