    Is there still artillery, armor and machinery there from the battle like in the beginning of the movie? If so, thats teally :cool:

    Any other places that still have a large number of destroyed things from the war? I always thought abandoned stuff like this was neat. I think it would be pretty cool to go to europe someday and tour old battle fields

    I'm not sure, but I went to Pensacola, Florida a few weeks ago, and out on Santa Rosa Island at Ft. Pickens (olllllld civil war, wwI, wwII fort) there is the fort, a Pre-WWI coastal defense gun emplacement with a gun left, and a huge emplacement of WWII coastal defense guns, as well as a rebuilt lookout tower. I thought that was cool, and wasn't really something I expected out in Florida. I'll post pictures tomorrow if anyone is interested.
