<<  The Gettysburg Licensed battlefield Guides are great, but they are not unique. Antietam National Battlefield has a similar guide system and, IMHO, the guides are outstanding. Antietam's first battlefield guide was O.T. Reilly, who was five at the time of the battle and began giving tours when he was about fifteen. The current guide service was started a little more than five years ago.  >>

As I understand it, a National battlefield park is not required to have a guide force (over and above the Ranger force, that is), but if it does have one affiliated with it, the guides must be licensed.
