Top 10 Historic Battlefields

In a year when we are marking the 100th anniversary of World War I, the 150th for the U.S. Civil War and the 70th for the D-Day invasion of World War II, it seems most fitting to turn our attention this Memorial Day to the fields where so many fought and bled for their countries and causes. Battles have raged since the beginning of time and history has endless stories to tell about clashes, large and small. Cheapflights.com's top 10 historic battlefields are just a sampling of the places where we can pay our respects to the fallen. However, they stand out for the attention they pay to preserving and sharing the history that unfolded on these very spots.
