Get to Know Your Guide

Walking With History LLC is the brainchild of Darryl Smith, an avid hiker and backpacker, who also is a Civil War and American military history enthusiast.  Darryl was the founder of the Miami Rivers Chapter of the Buckeye Trail Association, served as the Activities Chair for the Cincinnati Civil War Round Table, served as the Communication Coordinator for the Military Heritage Chapter of the League of World War One Aviation Historians, and was a board of trustees member for the Buckeye Trail Association.  He is currently membership chair for the Cynthiana Battlefields Foundation and maintains 46 miles of the Buckeye Trail.  Darryl hikes and backpacks for recreation, and has always believed that the most effective way to understand our history is to walk the ground where history took place.


Darryl lives in Cincinnati with his wife Jennifer who serves as the inspiration for this venture.
