CRITICAL CIVIL WAR CAMPAIGN STUDIES

Satisfy’s the client’s need to understand an operation in the full detail in which it unfolds. Major campaigns are presented over three or four years. For example, the Vicksburg Campaign is eight tours—two a year involving 33 days and covering the span of operations from the summer of 1862 through the surrender of Port Hudson. The Atlanta Campaign is four parts and 17 days over four years. Each program supports the other but also stands alone.
