Pensacola Civil War History Tour

Before the Civil War, Pensacola was the largest and most prosperous city in Florida. At the war's end, the town was largely burnt and destroyed. Travel back in time to those dark days and learn how its citizens took up the secessionist sentiment. Learn how President Lincoln and the nation felt the war would begin in Pensacola. Hear how the town became the most militarized and hotly contested city in Florida. Visit the battle lines. Experience why the Federal enclave became a haven for runaway slaves. Narrator Wesley Odom uses enormous description, maps, and music from the era to bring this story alive with remarkable clarity, action, and strategy. The tour includes a walk through Fort Barrancas.

We took this your with Leeroy. I booked it for my husband as he is the history buff. Leeroy was extremely knowledgeable and we went to some pretty great spots. He even told us where to try for lunch, which turned out to be equally as amazing. Definitely would recommend this trip!
