We're thrilled to have renowned Civil War historian Mark Bradley leading our adventure as the on-bus tour guide. Here's a little more about Bradley from the N.C. Civil War Roundtable:
Mark is the author of the critically-acclaimed Last Stand in the Carolinas: The Battle of Bentonville, considered by many to be the definitive account of the largest Civil War land battle to take place here in our own home state.
He followed that effort up with This Astounding Close: The Road to Bennett Place, which takes us from the battle at Bentonville to the closing moments of the war for Sherman's and Johnston's armies, the surrender at Bennett Place.
In order to complete the story of North Carolina in the Civil War, his most recent effort takes on Reconstruction in Bluecoats and Tar Heels: Soldiers and Civilians in Reconstruction North Carolina. He has also written several articles for Blue & Gray Magazine and Civil War Regiments.
