Brush up on regional history with today’s side deal: for $7, you get one ticket to the Cincinnati Civil War Tour (a $15 value). Tours are offered every Saturday at 1:00 p.m. through October.
The Cincinnati Civil War Tour offers an illuminating jaunt through the Queen City while focusing on the people and places that influenced America’s bloodiest conflict. Stops include historic locations such as Old St. Mary’s Church, Memorial Hall, and the Emery Theater, among others, educating attendees on how Cincinnati was pivotal in shaping the outcome of the war. Learn about the Black Brigade and the first all-German regiment of the war, the “Dutch Devils,” as well as Sister Mary Anthony O’Connell, the “Angel of the Battlefield.”
Must call at least 24 hours in advance to schedule a reservation.
American Legacy Tours
Founded by a group of friends who created the acclaimed Newport Gangster Tour as a fundraiser in 2008, American Legacy Tours blossomed into a full-fledged tour company two years later. Participants choose from seven distinct tours that traverse cities as guides share fascinating and sometimes seedy history. The Queen City Underground Tour ventures beneath the city’s streets into a hidden burial vault and long-forgotten tunnels, and the Newport Gangster Tour delves into a scandalous past by visiting the sites of former brothels and speakeasies. Elsewhere, on the Haunted Covington Tour, guests feed their thirst for fright and their hunger for candy handouts from amiable apparitions.
