Civil War History Guide/Chaperon

Andrew is available to guide or chaperon your historic tours.  The only cost to your organization is expenses.  Donations are appreciated to further our mission, but Andrew would love to enhance your group's experience with his knowledge and enthusiasm.  Andrew can also plan an historic day trip or overnight for you.

Below are a couple of itineraries Andrew does annually or has done in the past.

Park Day
