Civil War

I found this to be too focused on the Civil War. Especially the early parts of this trip. And not enough "haunts". By the end of envelope #2 we were a bit bored. Did find a new place to eat. A little pricey but very good. I've already recommended that eatery. I have a grandson (currently stationed out of the area) who would have loved this adventure. I'm still glad I tried this trip and look forward to trying another.

Great stories!

Ive been to these areas before but never knew about these haunted stories. SO COOL. I hope they launch another haunted trip in the area. Can't wait to try another one.
