GET OUT IN THE WEEDS & CONNECT WITH HISTORY | Our historians interact  with the individuals in our small groups to deliver a powerful personal and insightful interpretative experience.  Using 15 passenger vans we access areas buses and large tour groups cannot.


BGES is a non profit, tax exempt educational organization that engages in preservation and educational projects that help Save our Civil War History.  The costs of these projects are paid from tax deductible donations from members of the BGES and good people like you. Here is some of what we are doing now.
