For those of us who study the Civil War reading books is our main tie to our past. However there is little that rivals actually walking the battlefields where our ancestors fought. To truly study a battle one needs the experience of seeing and feeling the fields in person. For those with physical limitations this is unfortunately difficult at best and in many instances impossible.
author, historian, blogger, film maker, and now battlefield guide, Michael Aubrecht. September 1, 2011 will mark the start of his newest venture, All-Access Battlefield Tours. AABT was born out of the needs of some friends of Michael's and his seeing the difficulty they had in enjoying their interest. AABT are tours geared toward those in wheelchairs who wish to visit Civil War sites at Fredericksburg or Spotsylvania. As Michael says "Our goal is to make sure that visitors go where they want to go, see what they want to see, and experience what they want to experience."
Congratulations Michael on your outstanding new venture. I wish you nothing but success!
