I've gotta stop at the Cozy Dog and have a corn dog anytime I'm in Springfield. It's important to honor the Ed (and Bob) Waldmire's contribution to singular American fare and their connection to the Mother Road!
My husband and I spent a gorgeous fall day here in September 2015. Little Bighorn Battlefield had long been on our wish list of places to visit. As with a number of Civil War battlefields we have visited, it is difficult to reconcile the carnage of the battle with the pastoral beauty of the setting. It is hallowed ground and I was pleased to see the Native Americans' side of the conflict as well as the US cavalry's side memorialized. The park service does a good job in explaining the battle with a small museum, a short film and plentiful markers scattered throughout the vast tract of land that makes up the National Monument. There's also a narrated tour available on cd for purchase at the visitor center, I'd recommend this purchase as it adds to the experience with a deeper understanding of events. Little Bighorn Battlefield is a sacred site and its attendant somber atmosphere was reflected in the demeanor of our fellow visitors on the day we visited. If you are at all interested in this chapter of US history, a visit to Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument is a must.
