Harpers Ferry, Antietam, Gettysburg program was excellent. Really enjoyed stepping back into this chaotic time of American history.


If you are looking to understand the Civil War Battle at Gettysburg-this program was very helpful for me. The primary presenter was very interesting to listen to and delved just deep enough as to provide a very complete sense and picture of the three days of a horrible battle.


Wonderful way to learn about the Civil War and about the role Gettysburg played in the war. Excellent value.


This 4-1/2 day tour of Gettysburg, Antietam and Harpers Ferry was very well organized and staffed by passionate, professional program managers and guides. There was a nice balance between lectures, field trips and free time. The meals, most of which were taken at the hotel, were filling and tasty. The only negative was the poor housekeeping at the hotel. It's a very busy hotel, and they seem to be understaffed/under-trained in the housekeeping department. Overall, it was a very educational program, truly in keeping with the Road Scholar mission. I learned so much, and am now motivated to continue reading about the Civil War, and Gettysburg in particular.


The trip is one of the most interesting we have ever taken. Lodging, food, guides, transportation but most importantly the learning experiences greatly exceeded our expectations. Road scolar is a wonderful way to experience the benefits of traveling to new locations and we plan on taking more Road Scholar excursions.


Sharing my love of history with new found kindred spirits developed into a fascinating 5 day tour through Harpers Ferry, Anteitem & Gettysburgh National Parks. I highly recommend.


Program is great for Civil War scholar, novice and pacifist covering many aspects beyond the battle itself and the before, during and after perspective. It brings history alive and relevant to important issues of our times.


I highly recommend this program! The quality of the guides and the delightfulness of the accommodation was outstanding!


This is a wonderful trip. Fabulous guides who made history so real and understandable. I learned so much.


The best presentation of the Civil War at Harper's Ferry, Antietam and especially Gettysburg. You'll learn and remember from this program about this critical time in our Nation's history.


Program provides expertly-guided tours of Gettysburg and Antietam battlefields, and of town of Harpers Ferry. Will be well worth while to anyone interested in the Civil War.


If you really want to learn about the Battle of Gettysburg, take this trip. It is an exceptional educational experience.
