"This was our first bus tour so we had no idea what to expect. We enjoyed everything about it. The handouts/maps we were given were wonderful to help visualize what Frank O'Reilly and Ed Bearss were showing us.  Our bus driver was wonderful. We had a lot of fun and met some nice people!  We loved the knowledge of both Frank & Ed's stories and how easy Frank made it to understand the battles and how intense the fighting was!"   -  Mike & BeeBee Naylor



"Thank you very much for an informative and fun tour this weekend. Ed Bearss and Tom Clemens both did a fabulous job. Ed is a "National Treasure" who at 95 years old walks the battlefields like a man half his age. I hope he has many more years to share his detailed, passionate, and entertaining knowledge.  Tom is extremely knowledgeable and is able to share that knowledge in an articulate easy to understand style.  You did an excellent job of organizing, coordinating, and managing the tour to make sure everyone and everything was were they were supposed to be when they were supposed to be there."   -  Joe Belmonte



"Thank you, thank you, thank you! Your Atlanta Campaign tour was the most informative, engaging, and rewarding Civil War tour I've ever taken and I'm no stranger to our National battlefields, battlefield guides (both short term and day long) and personal investigations. The depth and breadth of presentation was second only to being there and lord knows I wouldn't want to have been there! Truly a memorable and gratifying experience."  - Charlie Vavrina



"I really liked the "class" we had the first night. It set the stage for the following three days...both Frank O'Reilly and Mr. Ed Bearss were incredible not just due to their encyclopedic knowledge, but also because they are so amenable to questions and general interaction. What a treat and an honor. I loved this experience!" - Mike Szalma



"I rate this tour a 10! Everything was fantastic! Both Ed and Frank made the tour beyond exceptional."  -  Lorraine Brookus
