Description

Travel back in time to the 1860s on this private tour to the most significant Civil War locations in St. Louis. Take a somber walk through the burial grounds of soldiers, see the site that commemorates Ulysses S. Grant, and pay a visit to the location of the barracks where Grant, Robert E. Lee, and Jefferson Davis all served.

Following convenient pickup from your St. Louis hotel, head north to Bellefontaine Cemetery, where the history of the city runs deep. Stroll among the headstones to uncover the grave of Benjamin Bonneville, an Army officer who later became famous for blazing portions of the Oregon Trail. Just across the street is the Calvary Cemetery, where you can pay your respects at the final resting place of freed slave Dred Scott.

From here, travel south by the St. Louis Arsenal, a large complex of military weapon storage facilities owned by the Air Force. Continue out of St. Louis to the Jefferson Barracks, the oldest operating military installation west of the Mississippi. By the time of the Civil War, many of the most well-known leaders of the war had been assigned to serve here, including Ulysses S. Grant, William T. Sherman, Robert E. Lee, and Confederate president Jefferson Davis.
