Truman was our guide and he was so knowledgeable and so personable with a great sense of humor. I feel as though he made the battle come alive to us. We never could have appreciated or understood what the soldiers life must have been like by taking a self guided tour. This tour was well worth every penny.

Truman was very knowledgeable and an expert guide. He provided a clear picture of the battle through diagrams and stops at key locations throughout the battlefield. We had visited before and did similar tours with other guides as well as the self-paced phone app tour. Even with the multiple tours, we were still somewhat confused about what happened during the battle. Truman cleared up the confusion with insightful anecdotes and a clear description of the timeline and troop movements. We truly enjoyed our tour.
