Additionally, the journeys will feature guest authors and historians, including: James “Bud” Robertson, the premier historian on Virginia’s confederate soldiers and author of 10 books on the Civil War; Richard McMurry, author of four major books on the western theater; William C. “Jack” Davis, primary consultant for the A&E TV network’s “Civil War Journal” and author of more than 30 books on Civil War history; and Dennis Brown, screenwriter and producer of the Lincoln at Gettysburg TV movie, “The Perfect Tribute.”

Passengers will also enjoy the music of the Civil War performed by balladeer Bobby Horton, and spend an evening with Abraham Lincoln impersonator, James Getty.
