The legendary Ed Bearss and author and historian, Jeff Wert are scheduled to lead this tour.

Travel with Ed Bearss and Jeff Wert as we follow the dramatic events of Day 3 of the Battle of Gettysburg featuring Pickett’s Charge. We also trace the retreat of the Army of Northern Virginia from the fields of Gettysburg to Falling Waters on the Potomac River. Due to the length of the route of “Lee’s Retreat,” we will do these two days in reverse.
