H-Travel is a network for the academic discussion of the history of travel, transport, and tourism. It welcomes professionals in the field of history and also those in other fields, as well as non-professionals, interested in its subject. The focus is on the history of travel, transport, and tourism from the earliest beginnings through the present and future, throughout the world and beyond. The languages of communication for the list are English, French, German, and Spanish.
A student raised a question the other day regarding Americans traveling abroad for tourism during the Civil War. Does anyone have any suggestions about where I might find information related to what degree American (both Federal and Confederacy) travel abroad may have dipped, or not, during the 1861-1865 years? Or foreign travel/tourism to the U.S. (again Federal and Confederacy)?
Thanks in advance.
