Revolutionary War Field University Programs 

The Civil War has been called the Second American Revolution. Documents are filled with exhortations of officers and politicians to honor the memory of sacred ancestors. We believe there are many similarities and many dissimilarities. We believe that students of the Civil War need a robust understanding of the battles, tactics, and politics of the Revolutionary War if they are to develop meaningful comparisons. Our Field University and Weekend Warrior formats are well suited to these types of studies, and our programs highlight the critical events as well as lesser known encounters and issues.

Although Revolutionary War battles are not nearly the same in scope and intensity, the outcomes are still as decisive and sublime as more populated events—partisan warfare in South Carolina in 1780 is as important as the same in East Tennessee in 1862. Join us and be educated.

Revolution in the Smokies: The Over-the-Mountain Men • Aug. 22-25, 2018

With the Revolutionary War raging in the north, the British strategy shifted to bringing the southern colonies back into loyalty with the crown, a move that ended with the massacre of Major (and Scotsman) Patrick Ferguson and his men at Kings Mountain. This tour explores that story. With Bert Dunkerly, from Charlotte, NC
