"An Historical Atlas," by Robert H. Labberton (1885) Alt: Gaul Before and After the Roman Conquest
I received the following in email and have no suggestions for the writer. Do you? If so, please post in the comments.
In my old age I am interested in a possible tour of Switzerland, Germany, France and Belgium retracing the campaigns of Julius Caesar as described in his /Commentaries./ I was a classics major at Tulane University, B.A. 1963, J.D. 1966, and have always been interested in an expedition such as this. Friends of mine and I like to visit places where "something happened;" and we feel this would be a thrilling journey. Battles and strategies come alive when one views the actual place, sees the terrain and natural obstacles. I visited Lake Trasumeno in Italy a year or so ago where Hannibal defeated the Consul Flaminius in 217 B.C., as described in Livy, Book XXII. One can visualize exactly what happened and the text comes alive. This is the type trip we would like to take in France.
Do you know of any tours or itineraries available for this sort of thing? I appreciate your help and have signed up for your newsletter. I am rusty in Latin but am still intrigued by the history.
