Fried Catfish and a Civil War Battlefied

We had another day of fun times in store down in Tennessee. 

I saw a sign for hot boiled peanuts at a gas station and had no choice but to partake. When they're soft like this they sort of taste like beans, which I guess makes sense.

We stopped at a little place called Hagy’s Catfish Hotel on the bank of the Tennessee River.

Despite being in the middle of nowhere the place was packed which must have been a good sign.

Near the restaurant was Shiloh National Military Park. I'll just borrow a couple of lines from the website: "Visit the sites of the most epic struggle in the Western Theater of the Civil War. Nearly 110,000 American troops clashed in a bloody contest that resulted in 23,746 casualties; more casualties than in all of America's previous wars combined."

The park contains a national cemetery with about 4 thousand graves.
