I belong to an email discussion group, The Civil War Discussion Group (CWDG), which for the past five springs has gathered for battlefield tours.  Each year has alternated between eastern theater and western theater battlefields.  Last year featured the 1862 Shenandoah Valley Campaign with guide Gary Ecelbarger. 

This year, June 8-10, the plan is for three days of touring at Shiloh.  Guides will be the group’s own Dave Powell, who you may recognize as the author of several magazine articles and the designer of a few popular war games, and longtime NPS ranger Charlie Spearman.  Operations will be based out of Corinth, MS.

If you’re interested in attending or want more info, leave a message here in the comments section.  Be sure to use a valid email account when you leave your message.  The fee has yet to be determined, since it is dependent upon the number of attendees.  But the group is not in this for profit.  The price will include the tour bus, guide expense, any park fees, lunches and one dinner.  Lodging and other meals are on your own.

Update – Yes, the one dinner will be at Hagy’s.
