Civil war themed river cruises typically focus on the historic sites and landmarks associated with the American Civil War, which was fought from 1861 to 1865. These cruises typically include stops at ports of call along the Mississippi River and other waterways, where passengers can disembark and visit sites such as battlefields, museums, and historic homes.
Some popular civil war themed river cruises include the American Queen Steamboat Company's Civil War cruise, which travels from Memphis to Chattanooga, and the Victory Cruise Lines' Civil War cruise, which travels from Baltimore to Charleston. These cruises typically offer onboard lectures and presentations by historians, as well as guided tours of the sites visited during the cruise.
It was a brutal and bloody war. One that pit brother against brother. One that has forever marked American History. One of the most rewarding ways to truly understand this conflict is by river - the highway of the 1800's - with a cruise on the mighty Mississippi. Taking visitors through time, and back to one of the most tumultuous eras in American history, with onboard lectures providing in-depth insight, and shoreside historical reenactments bringing the past to life right before your eyes in places such as Vicksburg, Chattanooga, or Shiloh National Military Park, a Civil War History themed cruise can do what no number of history books can!
Inspiring and powerful, there will be tears shed and moments of silence. By the end, we can salute America with the new knowledge of all that had to happen for us to be living as we do today! From all along the Mississippi, guides and directors take their guests to the sites of some of the most influential moments in American history.
Along with entertainment and sightseeing tailored to Civil War history, you'll also enjoy delicious cuisine, with local specialties featured daily, and deluxe, upscale accommodations.
