Overview

Imagine sleeping in General Sherman's Savannah headquarters . . . sharing a night's rest with the friendly ghost of a Union soldier who plays the violin. . . staying in a Georgia inn where Confederate gold may be buried . . . or crashing at a Carolina hostelry with its very own battlefield.

For those fascinated by the Civil War, this engaging travel book offers a unique look into the best landmarks to visit and most interesting places to stay--more than a hundred intimate and historically authentic inns and bed-and-breakfasts, whose very owners are often descended from Civil War veterans.

Inside you will find addresses, contact numbers, and detailed descriptions of the ambiance and amenities of each lodging, including rates and discounts. The author also provides information, both historical and practical, on museums, battlefields, reenactments, parks, and other interesting sites--from infamous Pea Patch Island Prison in Delaware to the grandest of all antebellum mansions, Louisiana's sixty-six-room Nottoway Plantation, now an inn ready to wrap you in luxury.

With the help of this very special guidebook, you will be transported back to a bygone era and fully experience one of the turning points of American history.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
For Civil War buffs who want to immerse themselves in history, Lawliss provides the perfect travel guide. He includes everything from the Gettysburg battlefield, with a choice of five recommended inns, to the Windsor ruins in Mississippi, with a single accompanying inn. He divides the book into two sections, the North and the South, which are then broken down by state and attraction. The author of many travel books, he provides both basic information about each historical site, including details about directions, times open, admission price, and phone number. Lawliss then advises which historic inn to stay in during your visit and again provides information as to the address, accommodations (number of rooms available), amenities (air-conditioning, afternoon tea, etc.), rates, and restrictions (children and/or pets) as well as its historical significance. Used in conjunction with Spencer Kope's Everything Civil War (LJ 5/15/97), this good, basic guide would well serve the traveler in search of a total Civil War vacation.
