I love climbing the tower. I have arthritis and find it difficult to climb stairs. I can climb the stairs at the tower. It's great exercise. The steps are short but there are more than 100. I've been told 137.

I bought the DVD in gift shop, took the self guided auto tour using my cell phone. It brought the magnitude of this battlefield and the opposing forces into scope. This battle brought into play several key mistakes on both sides of the action.

As a homeschooling family, we like to take every chance we can to experience history. The children enjoy seeing all of the monuments and going through history as others might have. (Well, without being in the middle of battle.). The Wilder tower was their favorite.

I think you sent this comment to the wrong reviewer. My review mentioned nothing about casualty rates of the Spanish American War.

No problem with pets.....just pick up after yourselves. Sorry to have to say that, however there are so many who do not and it is a problem. There are many people who walk their pets through the wooded trails.
