Fort Mulligan

Today is P-Day so we decided to take a longer walk this morning.  Behind our apartments and church there is a hill where the county hospital is located.  We were told there was a Civil War Memorial Park behind the hospital so we trudged up the hill to see what we could find.  We found the Fort Mulligan Memorial Park.  It's in a strategic position atop the hill and was important to this area during the Civil War.  Interesting to see the mounds and cannons, and read numerous explanatory plaques.  They even had excerpts from the diary of a soldier who had spent time here.  Here are some great pictures Elder Orton took.

Saw this deer by the road as we drove to our dinner appointment Sunday.
From the top of the hill, looking East over the town of Petersburg.
In the center of the picture is our church steeple,  our apartments to the left of church.
