The Calvary at Balaklava

War.  It always seems to be war that creates a recorded history about otherwise obscure locations in the world.   It is true about the Balaklava region of the Ukraine in the Crimea.

War and invasion this key geographic location through recorded history have left scars on the land. Most of us know the name today because it is the name of the whole head cap we wear when engaged in winter activities.  The Balaklava is an integral part of the winter gear in most family closets.
