CWRTNY 61st ANNUAL
Appomattox Campaign: Lee’s Retreat…Grant’s Pursuit”
Sunday…October 11-14, 2018
For the past
three years, we’ve traveled the “Bloody Roads South.” We crossed the
Rapidan with the fabulous Frank O’Reilly as our guide and
experienced the horrors of The Wilderness and the slaughterhouse of
Spotsylvania. We came back for more with the incomparable Bob Krick,
Jr. as he helped us explore the ferocity of North Anna and Cold
Harbor, and with the thought-provoking Chris Bryce to help us cross
The James and lead us from City Point to opening battle at
Petersburg. Last year we returned to Petersburg for much more again
with Chris Bryce as he interpreted the long, ten-month siege and
finished with the delightful Tracy Chernault as he led us down the
Boydton Plank Road to White Oak Road, Dinwiddie, and Five Forks.
This year, we will conclude our Virginia sojourn with another 4-day
tour. We’ll commence with a walking tour of Richmond with Tour Guide
Mike Gorman as Lincoln enters the city. We’ll camp overnight in
Petersburg and proceed with Patrick Schroeder and Ernie Price to
follow Lee’s route of retreat and Grant’s pursuit to Amelia Court
House, Jetersville, Sailor’s Creek, High Bridge, Farmville,
Cumberland Church, Appomattox and finally end at the McLean House.
Please join us for a great trip!
