"We have met the enemy and they are ours...."

PerryThere are a few spaces still available for Oliver Hazard Perry: The War of 1812 on Lake Erie, June 3–9. Don't miss this great opportunity to learn from Historian Guide Craig Symonds about this naval battle that shaped American history. Call now before it's too late, 800- 628-8542.

Recommended reading: Decision at Sea: Five Naval Battles that Shaped American History by Craig Symonds. Part One: "Wooden Warships and the Western Frontier: The Battle of Lake Erie" is of special interest to HistoryAmerica travelers. Our Oliver Hazard Perry tour is based on Craig's research. Decision at Sea recently was awarded the Theodore and Franklin D. Roosevelt Naval History Prize, a most prestigious award in this field.




Apache Wars — Exciting and Reassuring

Sharon, Michael and Georgia can't possibly express how delighted we were with this extraordinary group of people who traveled the Southwest with us on Apache Wars. It is gratifying to know that we are able to present the same quality and authenticity that always distinguished HistoryAmerica from other historical touring companies. In his evaluation, Paul Weber said, "...business as usual at HistoryAmerica. Thank God, who else would I travel with?"

We will be bringing you more pictures and comments from Apache Wars in our next newsletter and on our website. In the meantime, suffice it to say that Neil Mangum was brilliant and fun; Bruce Airheart cared for us with his usual efficiency and aplomb; our driver, Liz, was a "girl" who amazed both Bruce and Pete; and altogether, travelers and new owners were treated to an exceptional learning vacation.



The Battle of the Little Big Horn

MangumHistoryAmerica started with this event 15 years ago, and we know that there is no other company offering such depth of information on this subject. The tour will be led by the first name in Custer and Crazy Horse historian guides, Neil Mangum, former National Park Historian and later Superintendent at Little Big Horn Battlefield. Besides visiting battle sites along the Bozeman Trail, Neil will take you to the Dull Knife Battlefield, which other tourists seldom see, and show you the new site that some think may have been the Crow's Nest. In addition, how else can you have the fun and care of Bruce Airheart, professional tour director extraordinaire, whose long friendship with Neil makes them an unbeatable pair. Nowhere else! Book now with Georgia or Sharon, 800-628- 8542, as there are only 14 spaces available before the tour goes to WAITLIST ONLY.
