  6. Hi, Heather. This is Mike Weeks. I'm very happy to see that you plan on using my book, The Complete Civil War Road Trip Guide, on your vacation. (I use Google Alerts to track my book online, and it brought me to your page.)
    I hope that you and your family have a great time and learn a lot in your travels. You are close to some of the best preserved battlefields of the war, and hopefully my book will help you find some of them. If you need questions or tips, let me know - I'm not hard to find. Best of luck! (URL is my Amazon author page/blog)
