Tour at Perryville

September 26th I will be leading the Tri-State Hiking Club on a tour of the Perryville battlefield. This will be my third time taking members of this club to Perryville, and I hope to provide those in attendance with a solid overview of the battle, Civil War tactics, and some accounts of those soldiers who fought at Perryville. I plan on using several sources, including some well done troop movement maps I found on WikiPedia. My focus on this trip will be on the Ohio regiments and their contribution to the battle. The group will "hike" at least seven miles, if not all of the ten miles of interpretive trails there. More details can be found here.
