Battlefield Tours – As I am local to Virginia, the eastern battlefields are easier logistically. I have given tours for groups small and large at 1st Manassas, Brandy Station, Edwards Ferry (Gettysburg Campaign), and Kelly’s Ford. Outside of that, if you are looking for a guide to cover aspects of the war around Charleston or Savannah, I am certain we can work something out. Anything to spread the good story of these important events from our history!
