Grant vs. Lee: The Overland Campaign of 1864 Tour Dates: September 8–12, 2020 With Gordon Rhea
Tour arrangements are being finalized for an detailed exploration of the titanic struggle between the Federal Army of the Potomac, and the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia in the spring of 1864. Tour guide Gordon Rhea has authored five, definitive studies of this period, the culmination of unmatched research into this critical confrontation. We'll settle in to an airport hotel in Richmond, Virginia for the duration of the tour, kicking things off with an evening talk by Gordon (September 8) to set the stage for the touring to follow.
The next four days (September 9-12) will be devoted to touring the battlefields and associated sites in accordance with Gordon's scholarship, beginning with The Wilderness, and moving through Spotsylvania Court House, the North Anna, Cold Harbor, and the transition to the Petersburg Campaign. There is no better, or more knowledgeable guide than Gordon Rhea, and our fall Civil War tour offers you an unparalleled opportunity to walk the ground with the foremost historian of the subject at hand.
Registration will be limited to one, full size, luxury motor coach.

All arrangements will be posted on this site by Thanksgiving, 2019.
