I don't come into the GDG to solicit business as a  tourguide.  It is 
probably inappropriate.
But since you asked I sent an email out of the room but I  didn't get your 
address right and I got a bounce back.
I am a Civil War battlefield tour  guide.  I am kind of like a prostitute.  
I'll go anywhere  anytime.  Been taking bus tours to the battlefields for 
20  years.
I've been prowling the battlefields around DC for 30+  years.
Fredericksburg-  I'd like to go wander around the  Slaughter Pen some more. 
 The northern stonewall is over-rated.  The  southern end of the 
battlefield is far more interesting.
There is a really really great restaurant on the river- very  romantic.  
Kind of a fancy place now but it it used to be a cheap  sports brass and fern 
bar.  Now called Tru Love's.  It has a  webvsite.   The manager James might 
throw us a  free round.
Just so you know,  I love being on a battlefield. I go by  myself all the 
time.  I'll go anywhere.
If you want a tour guide I will work for chili and beer.   Anywhere you 
want to go.  You should go on the Booth Escape Route tour with  me.  Way cool.
Any time anyone from GDG wants to go out and poke around a  battlefield 
I'll do it for chili and beer.  That goes for  everyone. 
We'll take John Grim.  He's fun.  Save your  money.  Let's get John and 
have some fun.  
A  Loyal Neo-Anti Unionist,

Esteemed  GDG Member Contributes:
I hope this is "on-topic" and offer my apologies if  it is not.

At some point this summer (I don't have anything planned at  the moment 
other than this is a goal of mine but depends upon having free  weekends which 
are in short supply due to some family issues), I would like to  get to 
Fredericksburg and tour some of those battlefields.

Is there  anything like the Gettysburg Licensed Battlefield Tour Guides one 
could use  for the Fredericksburg area battlefields?  Or does anyone know 
of people  who do it in their spare time or through a company in the area in 
which one  could hire a guide?

It is one of those things where I know the history  of what transpired in 
Fredericksburg but someone familiar with the ground and  area could show you 
those "out of the way" type places and with the modern  town almost on the 
edge of the NPS land, it is very hard to know "the ground"  as the time of 
the battle and where various points are in relation to each  other (I hope 
this makes  sense).
