    Ken is a great guide and storyteller. He made sure everyone could hear him, despite all the traffic noise, and that everyone could see all the photos he shared. His deep knowledge of the subject matter was also a BIG plus.

    I thought I would be going in the Jennie Wade house on this tour. It is strictly a walking tour.
