Rick Brittain has extensive knowledge of the Civil War and was able to answer any question about anything. He also knows the Revolutionary War history of Charlottesville and surrounding area. He is a kind and considerate guide and an interesting story teller. Just the best!

Rick Britton is deeply knowledgeable about Charlottesville, Jefferson, UVa, the Civil War and much more. He was great with the 12 year old and with grandpa; 3 hours of knowledge-imparting, geniality and good humor.
