Does the word GABION ring a bell?

Gabion Yorktown 2006
Well, here I am standing beside a gabion at the Yorktown VA battlefield. Any guesses as to what it was used for in the final turning point battle of the American Revolution? Do you think I can lift it? Would it make a corral for roaming cats?

I was standing in the cold rain on a tour of the battlefield with my husband, John, when we came upon this odd-looking apparatus. I will leave you to guess or do a search until the next blog on March 1st.

This is a test!

Good Luck! Bonne chance!
