Historic Texas Tour Gets High Praise

Texas GroupThe Ed Bearss-led tour of Texas went off as scheduled in March 2005. Judging by the many "10s" the tour garnered on the after-tour evaluations and the participant testimonials below, it was a big success, despite a chilly day when the group photo was taken.

"More than fulfilled my expectations. I am impressed by the organization and the comprehensive itinerary. It was just plain done right! I don't have the time to go on more than one or two in each year. It is an excellent program."
— Lowell Ueland, Glencoe, MN

"Ed Bearss performed in his usual excellent manner. Perhaps the most enjoyable tour yet with HistoryAmerica. Bruce Airheart did a remarkable job as tour director. He kept everyone at ease with his sense of humor. Henry Mattox did a fine job as driver."
— Russell Dean, Indianapolis, IN

"It was a great tour with great people. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. The service was wonderful as it always is."
— Barbara Smith, Nepean, Ontario


Book CoverBenedict Arnold Continues to Fascinate

As of May 30, more than 30 people planned to participate in "Benedict Arnold: Tarnished Hero," set to run August 20–28, 2005, out of Boston. (Eight spaces remained.) The ever-popular tour, led by Ed Bearss, will open up a world of gallantry, combat leadership, and treason, brought to life by following in his footsteps.

Maine's beautiful Kennebec River, historic Quebec City, unspoiled Lake Champlain, and majestic West Point on the Hudson are just some of the sites we will visit.

The book you may want to read above all others, written by our friend Jim Martin, is pictured at the right.

They can tell you all about the dream steamboat vacation you have been thinking of taking and how simple it is to book — or how there is still time to sign up for The Fight of the Few and attend the famous Duxford Air Show, observing more than 50 vintage aircraft taking to the skies.

Pete Brown, meantime, is off to Virginia for Best of Bearss III where he will serve as tour director for the sold-out event. Then he will accompany the HistoryAmerica group on the Battlefields of Western Europe tour in June. He would like to remind you there are two seats left on that one!

If you haven't been to the website of our friend Dave McComb, be sure to check it out and get a summary of our recently completed cruise to the South Pacific WWII sites. We will be using another elegant small ship, the Clipper Adventurer, in May 2006 for the Italian Campaign of World War II led by Ed Bearss. This one is going to sell out fast, so watch for the map and details coming in the mail soon.
