Custom tours

Screen Shot 2017-05-29 at 10.22.26 AMIf you have the time, perhaps you’re in town for the weekend or a few days, and you’re interested in a more personalized or custom approach – and you want to get your Civil War geek on – then you will want to engage me (Kraig McNutt) as your Civil War sherpa, to custom-design and deliver a very personal and off-the-beaten-path approach to Civil War Franklin.

I have been leading tours of historic Franklin and the related Civil War sites for over 15 years. I combine several elements to design the perfect tour:

  • Knowledge of the local history, both military and social
  • Passion for the Civil War and mid 19th century history
  • Integrating objects into my tours, e.g., artifacts, letters, images, etc.
  • Preparing you for your tour with exciting and helpful digital resources, e.g., web sites, maps, videos, photos, and appropriate research

My tours are booked in half-day, or full-day modules. I spend time with you via email or on the phone discussing your interests, needs, and background to help design the perfect tour for you and your guests. These tours can range from $100 on up, depending on what you want and how many are in your group.

Here are some of the sites you can choose from for a custom tour: the battlefield, post-battle Civil War hospitals, cemeteries, Fort Granger, historic downtown sites, churches, the old Harpeth bridge, the Nashville-Decatur Railroad, the Franklin Depot, African-American sites, key observation points, and where the General’s fell.
