Tommy knows his stuff. He made the walk fun and educational. I learned about the southern side of the civil war. I wanted it to continue. This would have been great for me in high school. Highly recommend.

Took Tommy’s tour. It was great. He is very knowledgeable and fun. He provided a Southern perspective for the Civil War which was very thoughtful and informative for a Yankee. Great job Tommy.
