This was a wonderful program! Outstanding Gettysburg guide, and many opportunities to learn and to experience this important time in our nation's past. It was my first Road Scholar trip. I hope to join many others.

The Road Scholar Gettysburg/Antietam/Harpers Ferry tour that I participated in was superb. I was impressed with the organization of the tours and the quality of the presenters/tour guides. I highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in Civil War history.

This journey is a must for anyone interested in the Civil War. And lucky you if you get to be guided by Rich Kuhn.
