We are pleased to announce a comprehensive tour of Chancellorsville! And leading it will be the Chancellorsville expert Bob Krick, who was responsible for the battlefield site for more than thirty years. This tour should greatly please those who have never toured Chancellorsville, as well as those who have been there even many times before - because Krick brings the most to the table.

For a couple of weeks in February 1862, the attention of the nation was riveted on two isolated Confederate fortifications in west Tennessee. The weakest link of Confederate general Albert Sidney Johnston’s defensive line in the west, Forts Henry and Donelson were ripe for invasion if only the Federals could muster the courage to take advantage of them. Enter Ulysses S. Grant.

The Battle of Perryville finalized Confederate General Braxton Bragg's famous "Kentucky Invasion" with a tactical victory for the Confederacy, but his eventual retreat that led to Union control of the critical border state for the remainder of the war.

Perryville has long been the "forgotten" battle in Civil War history. This excellent site, visualized and built by respected and well-known historians working in the field, goes a long way toward changing that.

Jackson's Valley Campaign, Ecelbarger, Civil War Tour, Stonewall,

This Saturday, May 20 tour, led by the leading expert, Gary Ecelbarger – “the man who wrote the book” - will follow the footsteps of Jackson and his army over historic terrain rarely viewed by organized groups. We will explore the small but vicious killing fields at Front Royal, Buckton Station, Fairview, Middletown and Newtown (today's Stephens City). In addition, we will stand on and near the heretofore forgotten Valley crossroads where on-the-spot decisions altered the length, course, and momentum of the campaign. This includes stops at Asbury Chapel, Double Tollgate, Cedarville and Milltown. When all is said and done, each participant will leave with a comprehensive understanding of the Heart of the Valley Campaign.
