Rain began to lightly drizzle onto my shoulders as I passed the endless headstones. It seemed like the cement markers continued for miles, and for miles they did indeed.

By the early 20th century military commemorations and reunions were growing in popularity in the United States. Federal and state governments, as well as private enterprises, were purchasing large amounts of land to serve as cemeteries, reunion grounds and historical parks for the purposes of celebration and remembrance. This was especially true in the Southern United States, where Confederate memorial grounds and historical sites sprung up in considerable numbers after the Civil War and the contentious period of Reconstruction.

Like every Anzac Day, the area around Gallipoli experiences a heavy battering from the masses of tourists making their pilgrimage to pay their respects to their ancestors.

I just came back from my trip to France and while I was there I was able to visit the Normandy American Cemetery. The experience was something I will never forget, after having seen the graves of all the men who gave up their lives. I also went to Nice, Monaco, and Paris, and I really enjoyed the trip. My dad told me that you are about to go on a trip to Croatia. I hope you have a wonderful time there!
