I went to the Washita National Battlefield with a couple of friends one day in April of 2009. We were very impressed with the visitors center but less so with the actual battlefield. It seemed very austere with respect to wayside exhibits and signs. I never get tired of visiting local historical sites, especially Indian Territory Civil War sites. It's kind of habit of mine to photograph historical markers, tomb stones, and monuments when I can. I will even go out of the way sometimes to locate these. This can aggravate my wife to no end when we are on the road. Of course I don't have to do this to aggravate her. I just have to exist.
