Mars la Tour, Rezzonville et Gravelotte

While visiting The Family, I got the opportunity to visit the country side around Gravelotte before going to the "Musée de la guerre de 1870 et de l'annexation"in Gravelotte. The area is full of monuments dedicated to the Franco-Prussian conflict, I took the pictures yesterday July 15th and the country side looked very much like it must have had in August 1870, glorious sunshine and peaceful woods wheat fields before the two armies clashed. It was very quiet and somehow eerie to think of all the death and destruction that took place here. I did only see German markers but I am planning another trip...
