I was there back in 2005 when I was stationed at Ft. Knox for a spell. I thought it was the best preserved state battlefield that I have been to. The visitors center wasn't user friendly, but I think they were getting ready to build a new one. I walked the entire battlefield which I think ended up being about six to seven miles in the July heat, but it was well worth it. I did my research ahead of time so I'm not sure how well the field was interpreted, but I do remember there were quite a few markers out. All in all an enjoyable experience for an under appriciated battle. I think the thing that suprised me most was how the topographical and meterological effects prevented Gen. Buell from understanding that his left wing was under attack for most of the day. Talk about bad reporting from subordinates... Cheers!
