I went on tour with my three boys (10,7,5). The tour wasn't that long, maybe 30 minutes but it was very well done and informative. We were all happy that we took the tour before we left town.

We took the Jennie Wade tour today with our children! It has been one of the most informative tours we have been on yet. Starr is very educated on Jennie Wade!
