Robert Bailey

“I have had a love of American history, and the Civil War in particular, ever since I can remember. To read about the battles is one thing, but to have the opportunity to visit where they actually happened enhances the experience immeasurably. To be able to guarantee that experience for future generations is the source of great satisfaction.”
