The Guns Are Now Silent
Tapp Farm, The Wilderness Battlefield, Spotsylvania--Between May 5th and 7th 1864 roughly 27,000 Union and Confederate soldiers were killed and wounded during the Battle of the Wilderness. In coming back across the Tapp Farm field; which was a pivotal point in the battle, I was struck by the position of the cannon overlooking a field of wildflowers.
