We’ve covered 16 different places or events for you to check out in Bowling Green regarding the Civil War. Since many of you were on fall break two weeks ago and last week we had the Civil War event we thought it would be great for you to check out one or all sixteen of our spots we’ve looked at so far! You know, as a refresher.
