    Do I need to call Mt Olivet to reserve a spot or just show up? Thank you!

    No, all you need do is show up, with the admission price.

    I was looking forward to doing this all week and was very disappointed when I got there at 8pm to find out the last tour was at 7:30pm.

    Please do this again next year. I think this is a great idea.

    Sadly I was disappointed this year too and missed it worse than Justin, I just now searched for the date to find it was held last weekend. I wish they would run later into the evening too, it’s far better after dark.

    The years I’ve attended I enjoy it so much, many thanks to SCV #28 and everyone involved for all your efforts.

    So disappointed we missed this. Been waiting for it to bring a homeschool group. We thought it was this upcoming week.

    I’m glad the people who made it had fun, sorry to the people who didn’t but I got a new event for State Citizens on January 26 there’s a celebration of Louisianas secession going to be held in the French Quarter New Orleans LA, on Royal Street in front of the Courthouse starting at 3:30
    There’s going to be passing out a lot of Citizenship Applications, Public Education, and on the side food, refreshments and music to keep people around to stay.
    Thanks for the hard work my comrad Confederate Patriots.
