- Apr 27, 2007Does John Michael Priest still give tours of Antietam?
I used to see him often on the battlefield. He also used to be a member of several online groups, but I haven't read any postings from him in a long time.

You need not shy from the term. You are seen in the group as one. This
reminds me of a topic we covered about a year ago as to what makes
someone an 'historian'. I think we also discussed why people use the
word 'an' before the word 'historian'.

Calling me an expert, now you are pushing it. <g>
BTW, there is no longer a position of 'director of the guides'. We have
folded most of my duties into the bookstore, led by Bob Casey and the
other good folks at WMIA. You can now book a tour right there in the
book store. The guides retain a three-person advisory committee (Mike
Gamble, Jeff Driscoll and myself). Ted Alexander and I still handle
recruitment, so if you want to be a guide, let us know.
