Rest When You Get a Chance

Sometimes our field trips are tiring, especially when the weather is hot. On our first day at the Petersburg Battlefield, group members started showing signs of fatigue around mid-afternoon. After all, most had been up before dawn and on the road around 7 AM in order to reach Richmond by 10:30.

Although our professor still looked energetic, many of us found a spot to sit down while he lectured, or at least found something to lean on.

(The artillery piece shown here is "the Dictator," or to be precise, the reproduction of it at Petersburg Battlefield.)
