This is the kind of tour that one can only hope for! My brother and I are Civil War buffs. We have had some tours where the guide is a preachy scout leader with a prepared spiel, which frankly feels more like a high school lecture. Bob Murphy's tour is like visiting with someone who actually fought the battle. His depth of knowledge and presentation give you an appreciation of how the battle unfolded and WHY the opposing armies interacted the way that they did. He explains topography and timing which gives the battle context and historical scope. He tailors his tour to the client's needs and interests. He is personable and his information and vignettes were always interesting. I could not recommend him more highly. We did Harpers Ferry as well. Bob picked us up at our hotel and hauled us around all day A great experience!
