Urban Battle Tours
Urban Battle Tours offers a fun, unique and educational way to explore historic American battles that have been “lost” over time through urban development. Because the battlefields are now paved roads, neighborhoods or commercial districts, our primary goal is preserving the memory of these battles, the men who fought them and the important roles they played in the history of our country.
We can accommodate large corporate groups, family reunions, bachelor parties and groups of more than 14. We’ll customize a tour for your specific need. Please contact us directly for pricing and to schedule your group tour.
Urban Battle Tours is a strategic partner to the preeminent experiential leadership training and development firm, Battlefield Leadership. Contact us to see how our programs can create stronger leaders, teams and organizations.
Urban Battle Tours can be an effective way for educators to teach students about local history and the Civil War. Whether you are an educator of middle, high school or college students, we can develop a tour customized around your specific curriculum needs and time constraints.
We host tours for the general public on select dates throughout the year. We offer 90-minute van tours for the Battle of Atlanta and Chattanooga. We also host a special pub tour for the Battle of Atlanta.
"An Amazing Experience..."
"It was a joy to join your tour!!! We all said it was the best tour we have every been on.... not canned, not soporific, and your knowledge and stories were amazing!!!"
Our clients say:
"Matt Spaulding’s pub tour of the Civil War Battle of Atlanta was an amazing experience. The Tour was as educational as it was fun. With a group of fifteen Captains in the United States Army, Mr. Spaulding took us on a very detailed tour of the battle’s key sites, including Command Headquarters locations and sites where major players in the Battle of Atlanta had died. His knowledge of each of the events was obvious in his confidence and clear and concise presentation. The stops we made turned the tour’s atmosphere from educational to exciting and entertaining while keeping the entire group engaged in the conversation. Mr. Spaulding kept the presentation visual, interactive, and fascinating for the entire tour; no one in the group was bored and by the time it was over, the whole group wanted more. To describe the experience of Matt Spaulding’s tour in such a short review does not do it the justice that it deserves. As the coordinator of my group’s trip, Mr. Spaulding has made me successful with no effort from myself other than calling him. I am recommending this trip to everyone in the Fort Benning Maneuver Captain’s Career Course and anyone who is a fan of American Civil War History and loves to have fun."
