American Cruise Lines launching Civil War battlefields cruise
American Cruise Lines is introducing a brand new cruise for history buffs.
The 35-day Civil War Battlefields Cruise visits nearly every major battlefield of the American Civil War, covering 13 states.
It departs 4 May 2024 from New Orleans and finishes in Gettysburg on 6 June.
Each day will highlight battlefields and events from Fort Sumter and Shiloh to Vicksburg and Antietam.
The onboard experience will be curated to bring context to each day’s exploration.
Experts will join guests for the entirety of the Civil War cruise.
The Civil War Battlefields Cruise will be led by Bertram Hayes-Davis, who is the great great grandson of Jefferson Davis, an American politician who served as the president of the Confederate States from 1861-1865.
” Guests will experience the people places and events of the war as they visit the battlefields and stand where history was made,” said Hayes-Davis.
The cruise takes place on three ships and sails the Mississippi River, the Tennessee River, the Potomac River, the East Coast Intracoastal Waterway and the Chesapeake Bay.
