11th Annual Spring Tour:
The Ultimate Petersburg Campaign Part I
April 24-27, 2014

Join A. Wilson Greene and guest experts on a unique tour of sites associated with the 1864 Campaign for Petersburg. If you think you’ve experienced the Petersburg Battlefields before, you will be in for a pleasant surprise as our itinerary takes you to unmarked places that few visitors have ever seen.  Our tour begins Thursday evening and concludes by 5:00 p.m. on Sunday.  Please note that portions of our schedule involve substantial walking across trails and through the woods.  Those incapable of walking two miles and standing for thirty minutes may find this tour overly strenuous. Reservations required.
