The history of the area with a private guide


During the closing days of the Civil War, Sherman led 60, 000 Union soldiers into Raleigh, a town of less than 4000 people. Only one day after the occupation, Abraham Lincoln was assassinated. The drama that unfolded from this event is only one of the many interesting stories included on this tour.

Itinerary

From the Confederate Cemetery to the grounds of the State Capitol we'll take a riding and walking tour of sites significant to the War years in Raleigh. We'll see churches that served as hospitals and factories, homes where the human drama of war played out, and statues that commemorate the sadness of the time.

Meeting Point + Tour Duration

Meeting Point Options: Rail or Bus Station, Airport, Hotel, Address or Intersection, Monument/Building

Duration: 2 hours

Transportation

Although I generally prefer walking tours, I can accomodate 4 passengers in my Lexus sedan. The tour can be both a windshield and walking tour. My car is comfortable and air conditioned, but 3 people would need to sit in the back seat.

What’s Included

Other: I will meet you in a central location and provide a guided tour that is both walking and riding. I can point you to exhibits and Civil War sites that you can do on your own time.

What’s Extra

Other: There are many Civil War sites in the area and some house museums which charge fees that would be the customer's responsibility.

A Recent Review of this tour

Parker was fantastic - incredibly interesting and knowledgeable about the Civil War Years in Raleigh and about Raleigh's history generally. She picked us up from our hotel in her comfortable Lexus and we had a fascinating two hours with her. Highly recommend.
