We’re determined to fill up the remaining seats on the van for our first tour of the summer, UNSEEN APPOMATTOX with Patrick Schroeder, so are making this one-time offer to select Civil War lists. Sign up for next weekend's Unseen Appomattox tour ($215), http://web.me.com/civilwarforum/Unseen_Appomattox/Welcome.html and choose one free tour from any of the ones listed below (list includes several West and Trans-Mississippi venues -- we're also working on a Spring 2011 Red River Campaign with Gary Joiner).
Appomattox will be a spectacular outing. We'll have a small group in a large van with lots of opportunity to engage Patrick one-on-one. We're headquartered at historic Spring Grove B&B (lodging is not included, but you can get a 10% discount for two nights stay). http://www.springgrovefarm.com/
We'll depart Spring Grove at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, and return by 4:00 p.m. Sunday we'll be out from 9:00 a.m. until approx. 1:00 p.m. Both days include full breakfast (if you stay at Spring Grove), and lunch. On Saturday night, enjoy a presentation by Patrick -- pizza and wine will be provided. We're quitting early enough on Sunday that people can get headed home early, or else had back to the NHP for another visit.
Email if you're interested, or if you know anyone else who may want to take advantage of the two-for-one tour deal.
