Battle Focus  This company is owned by Parker Hills, a good friend and one of the most effective and entertaining battlefield guides — teachers really — that I have ever heard.  Parker has been a noted military staff ride leader since 1987 and his clients include military and corporate leaders, as well as regular folks. 

Battle of Mobile Bay Civil War Trail  This is the largest project we have undertaken to date:  Under development since 2001, we have produced a driving tour guide, "Damn the Torpedoes!"  The Campaigns for Mobile, 1864 - 1865, and 19 signs interpreting the Civil War campaigns of 1864 and 1865 for control of Mobile and Mobile Bay.

Sycamore Shoals State Historic Site  We developed the exterior interpretative signage of this state site from the ground up, as it were, installing four signs and using the park, which lies about five miles from our office, as a testing ground for new media and laminates.  This is an important site on the historic Wilderness Trail.  (See below.) 

The Exchange Place is a living history 19th century farm site which recaptures life in the early 1800s.  And it was a relay station on the Old Stage Road.  It is an important stop on the Tennessee portion of the Wilderness Trail.
