BGES conducts its Civil War Field University by design for small groups usually traveling in vans to facilitate maximum access where buses cannot go. By keeping the groups small, BGES provides a stimulating and invigoratingly personal experience available from no other organizations offering Civil War Tours. Net proceeds underwrite charitable and educational activities of the organization. The reputation of BGES has caused it to be sought nationally and internationally for educational and leadership training, attracting some of the nation’s most respected historians and scholars both as members and teachers.
