THE WAR OF NOBLE CAUSE .... A SINGLE NATION'S FIGHT

THIS SPECIAL JOURNEY along the rugged path of history takes us to a time of American struggle for what today seems a simple, and inalienable right. From the first shots fired at Fort Sumter to the infamous Gettysburg battlefield this war between brothers caused a profound suffering, all for a noble cause — the freedom our nation holds dear.

Our tour revisits many battle sites fought along the southern front and follows the movements north. We explore the fight for the railways through Tennessee — a significant link to western supplies for which both sides fought bitterly for control. To the colossal three-day clash across the hills and fields of rural Pennsylvania - the turning point of the war.
