    On a cool January day my wife and I took the Civil War/Reconstruction walking tour. Because of the weather it was just me, my wife, and the guide, Davis. The tour was wonderful. Davis was very knowledgeable, and made it so interesting.. it was obvious that Davis totally knew the subject and he loves the job. If you are in Beaufort, SC, I would totally reccomend this tour and if at all possible request Davis for your guide.
