Stretching for Information but Still Good - Civil War Era Walking Tour

For people who want cursory knowledge of the Civil War era in New York City, this walking tour is a great option.  The tour guide is very knowledgeable and energetic, and she'll keep you engaged throughout the whole tour.  However, the information presented can, at times, lack cohesion.  Sometimes, you get the impression that the company is struggling to put together an entire tour about Civil War era New York.

NYCTourist Travel Info

Features: The Civil War Era Walking Tour of Lower Manhattan is a 2.5-hour walking tour led by Karen Q., the owner of Patriot Tours. On this fun and educational NYC walking tour, you'll get to see Broadway, the Tweed Courthouse, St. Paul's Chapel, John Street Methodist Church, Wall Street, Delmonico's, and more, all in the context of America's most devastating war.

Why We Go: The Civil War Era Walking Tour of Lower Manhattan is not only fun, it's educational! You'll learn all about New York City and the role it played in American history, from its influence on the Civil War to its influence on the cotton trade.

  • Interesting Tidbits: On the Civil War Era Walking Tour of Lower Manhattan, you'll learn all sorts of interesting things about New York, such as the city's conflicted role in the Civil War. Did you know, for example, that the Confederate anthem "Dixie" was written in New York City? Or that the city's newspapers accused President Lincoln of entering the war on false pretenses?
  • Small Groups: Because the Civil War Era Walking Tour of Lower Manhattan is limited to small groups (ten people on weekdays and 15 on weekends) you're sure to receive lots of individual attention from your tour guide. You'll have plenty of opportunities to ask questions or to pause and look at the sights, and you'll never have to worry about being left behind.
  • Historical Facts: Not surprisingly, the Civil War Era Walking Tour of Lower Manhattan is chocked full of U.S. history. Among other things, you'll learn about the Peace Democrats, War Democrats, Republicans, and Tammany Hall, along with legendary New Yorkers Horace Greeley and Fernando Wood.

Inside Knowledge: Karen Q., the official Civil War Era Walking Tour of Lower Manhattan tour guide, uses her skills as a researcher and storyteller to make her tours exciting. All her stories are based on factual accounts found in newspapers, letters, diaries, and other historic texts, so you can be sure of their veracity.

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Look for Other Patriot Tours: If you enjoyed the Civil War Era Walking Tour of Lower Manhattan, consider attending one of the other Patriot Tours, such as the Revolutionary War Era Walking Tour of Lower Manhattan or the Architectural Tour of Lower Manhattan.
  • Do Dress Appropriately: Except on days of heavy snow, the Civil War Era Walking Tour of Lower Manhattan is held rain or shine, so be sure to dress appropriately. Wear comfortable shows and weather-appropriate attire. Layers are a good idea.
  • Don't Bring the Kids: While fledgling history buffs may enjoy the Civil War Era Walking Tour of Lower Manhattan, we advise you to leave your kids at home, as most young children are too restless to enjoy the tour.
  • Don't Expect Your Average Tour: The Civil War Era Walking Tour of Lower Manhattan is not your average NYC history tour. You'll be impressed by the breadth and depth of your guide's knowledge and her spot-on sense of humor. You'll never look at the Big Apple the same way again!
