Day tour to Karak Castle

Does anyone know if there is a day tour to Karak Castle and surrounding areas from Jerusalem or only from Jordan?

By the way, Machaerus you will find it under the name of Mukavir it is the same Citadel of Herod.

You can visit in one day, but with a lot of hustel and be aware about the border timmings, we had this experience with Petra last year, very hard same day and back!

What year exactly did the American Civil War take place and what year did The Battle of Hattin happen or any Crusader events / battles

Perhaps the difference explains the historical interest

The American Civil War was from 1861-1865.

The Battle at the Horns of Hittin was on July 4, 1187

The only "connection" (and I say this tongue in cheek) is that it was July 4 -- clearly there is no connection and no parallels.

As others have pointed out - there really is nothing to see there, except for beautiful wildflowers in the spring.
