    Our guide, Truman was outstanding! I am a PA native and a history lover; notably the civil war. I have been to Gettysburg many times and have had numerous guided tours. I have never been disappointed, but our guide Truman made the battlefield tour come to life! Not only was he very knowledgeable about the battles, his attention to detail provided the best understanding I’ve experienced as to the movement and orientation of each day’s battles. His enthusiasm also made the guided tour a most memorable one, that I would highly recommend.
