The tour itself was through the city and graveyards vs what I thought was the actual “trail”. That information could have been told in a lecture vs in front of grave stone. guide should not assume everyone knows or remembers the important American historical facts. Answered questions generously however. Girls enjoyed your more then I did please know.
