Tour Organizer Offers Stimulus Specials
The Civil War Education Association has been around long enough to have given 400 tours and workshops for those of us who never tire of the subject. I just took a course yesterday in Fredericksburg on researching the Civil War at the National Archives, Library of Congress and other places. It was excellent.
To keep his business going during the economic downturn, Bob Maher began offering discounts of about 20 percent for registering three months in advance, and even tossed in some free books, always a strong draw. He said it has helped him through this year, and his 2010 classes are drawing a lot of interest. Find out more at the

Tours by CWEA offered in the coming months include "Chickamauga and Chattanooga: A Field & Walking Tour" (Oct. 8-10), "Stonewall Jackson's 1862 Valley Campaign: The Complete and & Chronological Tour" (Oct. 12-17) and "Montgomery and Selma: Alabama's Role in the Birth of the Confederacy and Witness to its Final Collapse -- A Field & Walking Tour" (Oct. 30-31).
For next year, there is his always popular January in Florida symposium, "18th Annual Sarasota Civil War Symposium" (Jan. 20-23) and a new offering, "Robert E. Lee Sites in Virginia: In Infancy, Youth and as a World-Renowned Solider" (April 9-11).
Maher also offers tours for American Revolution sites and overseas tours on World War II.
