We went on our second tour with Mr. Bradford today. He does an amazing job of making history seem alive and interesting. We attended with our homeschool co-op and he is so good with children. I highly recommend his tours, you won't regret it.

Our Homeschool group of close to 30 people (adults and children) enjoyed our field trip today at the whitemarsh island preserve. Aaron is a wealth of information and kept the children as well as the adults engaged. We thoroughly enjoyed our Liberty Encounter! We’re already planning our next one!

On the final day of our weeklong visit to Savannah, Georgia we made the pilgrimage to historic Wormsloe. So much to love about this historic destination but during our walking tour of the grounds, we had the good fortune of meeting up with historical guide, Aaron Bradford. Aaron proceeded to ‘walk us through’ life in 1730s, through the eyes of a private in the earliest of days of our Nation’s founding! Our time with Aaron was informative and engaging! My wife and I both agreed that this impromptu meeting with Aaron and the time spent learning about the early days of Georgia was truly a highlight of our week in Savannah! Aaron Bradford ‘brings history to life’! We would strongly encourage families with children of all ages to spend time with Aaron, through a personalized Liberty Encounters tour. We can’t think of a better way to learn about our Nation’s rich history!

On a Liberty Encounters tour you will stroll through the historic squares and be immersed in Colonial Savannah's rich and fascinating history. Beginning with a call on the drum, the tour guide, dressed as a Colonial Savannah militiaman, instantly captivated us with his talents and recount of historical events in Georgia before and during the Revolutionary War. He was polite, enthusiastic, and engaging from beginning to end, encouraging questions and pictures from his guests. My children were thrilled to be involved throughout the tour when the guide gave his guests the opportunity to use historic props and flags. They listened and answered questions and were especially excited when we re enacted a local historical battle from the Revolutionary War! We learned so much about the Georgia colony and enjoyed stopping at the statues and monuments and now understand their significance. Savannah is beautiful, and since we went on the Liberty Encounters Colonial Savannah tour, we now feel like we have truly met this historic town. A 90 minute tour that easily draws you in and whisks you back in time. History comes alive! Thank you. My family enjoyed very much.

To the call of the drum and the waving of the flag, we gathered in Johnson Square. Aaron involved participants from the youngest to the eldest as he vividly painted a picture of Savannah’s Colonial life and its impact on the Natives. Squares grew into life in the City of Savannah. One participant was crowned “King George” who then chose Parliament. The impact of the Sugar and Stamp Acts were made personal with humor and thought-provoking questions. Are you a Patriot, and what is it worth to you? Stories of people and events were illuminated at the sundial, and we sang the chorus of a rallying song as we marched to Reynolds Square. At the statue of John Wesley, we learned of the Great Awakening and how it led to the Declaration of Independence. As those precious words rang out, we were reminded that our freedom came with a price. We relived the Battle of the Rice Boats and the heroism of James Jackson. At Oglethorpe Square, we took part in successful battle formations and tactics. We paused at Colonial Park Cemetery and remembered those who sacrificed for our faith, virtue, and freedom. Madison Square was hallowed ground that witnessed fighting in Savannah during the American Revolution. A statue told the story of the gallant Sergeant Jasper, who risked his life saving a flag and perished. As 90 minutes flew by, we were immersed in adventures in history. This is a highly recommended, compelling tour for all ages.
