Well, it’s July 6th, and General Lee is headed back to Virginia licking his wounds and wondering what could have been.
Mary and I are back in Texas and wanted to drop you a note to thank you for a most excellent tour package during our 6 days in Virginia, Maryland, WV, and Pennsylvania.
This was a special trip for me because I’ve never been to Manassas, Petersburg, Cold Harbor, Spotsylvania CH, The Wilderness, or Chancellorsville before. Of course, you can never get enough of Gettysburg and James added a new dimension to that day. The 5-day experience there last year was incredible.
Bob Krick was a little more fiestier this year and I loved it. He knows his stuff about the Army of Northern Virginia and General Jackson. And then there was Ed. What a national treasure this guy is and how wonderful it was to talk with him and get your questions answered. Hope he’s on tour next year, too.
Your associate, Ed, did another fine job of keeping us on track and safe. Appreciate him; he’s a very nice guy. There was a lot of driving on this tour and Art made it as comfortable as possible for us. Another nice man.
Thanks again for hosting such an interesting, informative, and fun event. Hope to see you next year on tour, David. Good luck to you on your future endeavors.
Drop me a note if you’re ever in Texas.
