2018 Civil War Travelogue

Welcome to my 2018 travelogue page! (Since these reports tend to be lengthy, they are often in separate HTML pages. Use the links just below to see all the finished reports.)

Here is a reminder about the reason I write these pages the way I do. They record my experiences and impressions of Civil War trips primarily for my future use. Thus, they sometimes make assumptions about things I already know and focus on insights that I receive. They are not general-purpose descriptions for people unfamiliar with the Civil War, although I do link to various Wikipedia articles throughout. Apologies about the quality of interior photographs—I don't take fancy cameras with big flashes to these events. If you would like to be notified of new travelogues, connect to me via Facebook.

Here are my completed trips:

Here are interesting ones that I considered attending, but did not due to scheduling considerations:

  • July 12–14: CWEA RE Lee and West Point – CWEA canceled this trip at the last minute!
  • August 1–5: CWEA "Thunder in the Valley" – CWEA canceled this trip following the death of Bob Maher
  • August 3–5: Emerging Civil War Stevenson Ridge
  • September 28–30: Friends of Bentonville
  • October 5–7: Mosby Heritage Area Association annual conference on Antietam
