Despite the fact that there was NO known Australian participation in the American Civil War it is non the less a piece of history that has had resounding effects on conflict in future campaigns as well as social and economic ideologies in the centuries since and well beyond the American Boarders.
In April 2014 we will have a 12 night 13 day programme commencing Sunday 27th ex Washington, visiting the Eastern Theatre Camapigns of the American Civil War
Despite the fact that these events occured over a hundred and fifty years ago the stark images that we even now see are no less moving or poignant than those we would see in those taken during either World Wars, the Vietman War or any other conflict. To give you an idea of what those times were like take a look at this powerpoint slideshow that came to me from a fellow Battlefield Enthusiast from source unknown. USA_1861-1865 , was probably one of the earliest conflicts we could say was the dawn of modern warfare with a photographic and visual record.
I thought I would start by introducing you to some passionate military historians and battlefield guides who can spend weeks, if not months, of each year walking and guiding interested people across the battlefield sites of the world. I was invited to join the Guild after having worked in association with a fellow member. We were touring the Western Front with a Battlefield Study Group from ADFA – RMC (Australian Defence Force Academy – Royal Military College Duntroon Canberra) when I was invited to consider membership. Why may you ask ? Well it’s as simple as being tested and put through the hoops, and being qualified by your peers, proving to yourself you know what you’re talking about and can deliver it in the field to clients in a way that brings the battlefield alive, they feel it, touch it and can even smell the battles of old. Many people visit battlefields for varying reasons – general interest, to study history in the raw, or follow in their relatives’ foot steps. What’s important is to do it with a professional battlefields guide. The Guild’s website tells the complete story: gbg-international.com Cheers, Dennis – Old Sea Dog Weathers
