When I have some time finalized, I will let you know to see if you are free. As I said earlier, I don't have anything planned at the moment, but wanted to put this on the list of places to visit this summer, should I find myself having a free weekend.

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
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.

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).
