    The last video you posted, while saying part 7, is actually the start of a different tour. There was the real-time tour for the Federal attack on the Mule Shoe, then a new tour an hour later for Lee to the Rear. You can see the time scale in this brochure on May 12:

    I was there helping the park’s social media team; a physically exhausting day but well worth it.

    1. Thanks, Ryan. I’ll have to take a look at it when I get a chance. Perhaps it will lead to another post with the other tour if I can link to it.
