Itinerary can be customized to fit within your time frame or budgetary needs.

This educational class trip to Gettysburg is designed to bring Civil War history to life. In order to develop future leaders we must connect them to the past. Appleseed Expeditions’ vision for this tour is to connect students to American leaders who made a positive change and inspire students to do the same. Through a combination of historical tours and community service, it is our hope that students will make a stand for people who’s rights have been infringed upon.
