From our base in Staunton, we take history lovers to where the stories are. We go to battlefields like McDowell, Port Republic and Tom’s Brook, and we talk about the common soldiers, the landscapes, the generals and the strategy, and the unfortunate civilians who found the war on their doorsteps.
And we go beyond the battlefields to wherever we can share stories of the Civil War era. The villages, cemeteries, by-roads, rivers and mountain gaps all hold stories that contribute to our understanding of the people and events of the 1860s.
The Valley is our home, and for more than 25 years we have been gathering knowledge about the War here, and we love sharing those stories with our guests. Let’s Go!
The Tom’s Brook tour combined great storytelling by Bill Miller and beautiful scenery of the Shenandoah Valley. If you ever have a chance to go with Bill do not miss it!
With this tour, history comes alive! To see the topography with the talk really helps to put the battles and strategy into perspective! Would absolutely do it again!!
