Out on the road again leaving Nashville behind and on to Mempis by the way of the Natchez Trace Parkway, the parkway travels 444 miles, one of the old roads through the area. On the parkway there are no motels or gas stations so if needing these services you need to exit the parkway to near by small towns. A few stops along the way checking out one of the higher bridges at birdsong Hollow, and the place were Meriwether Lewis died and is buried. Leaving the parkway behind I head off to the Battlefield of Shiloh, over 23,000 casualties here in a three battle. At one place on the battlefield was a small pond was red from all the blood from dying soldiers bathing there wounds. Also on the battlefield are the Shiloh Indian Mounds from a indian town build on the banks of the river some 800 years ago. then on toward Mempis for the night, some dinner and a couple beers then off to bed.
