June 16: Richmond Virginia 

Today we depart for Richmond VA where we will begin our experience of remembering the Civil War.  Upon arrival, take a shuttle to our airport hotel.  Overnight in Richmond.

 

June 17: Richmond-Fredericksburg

Today our tour begins at the grand Virginia State Capitol Building designed by Thomas Jefferson.  Here in the Old Senate Chamber is where Robert E. Lee accepted the command of the Army of Virginia.  Next visit the Museum of the Confederacy, which houses the largest collection of Confederate relics in one place.  This stop will also include a tour of the White House of the Confederacy, which was the residence of Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederacy. In the afternoon we will visit Holywood Cmetery, burial site for Confederate commanders J.E.B. Stuart, Henry Heth, George Pickett, and many others.  The most notables buried here are Jefferson Davis (President of the Confederacy), and 2 US Presidents: James Monroe and John Tyler.  Leave Richmond for a short drive north to Fredericksburg.  This will be our first battlefield visit to remember the battle of December 11-15, 1862.  No place more vividly reflects the war’s tragic cost in all forms.  Stand on Marys’ Heights and visualize this small town bombarded, farms large and small ruined, and more than 85,000 men wounded. We will remember the 15,000 buried here, most in unknown graves.  Overnight in Fredericksburg.  (B)

 

June 18: Bull Run-Manassas-Harpers Ferry

This morning's journey is  to where this all began in July 1861, the Battle of Bull Run/Manassas.  Here Union General Irvin McDowell faced Confederate General Beauregard.  This is where it was thought that this conflict would be over within hours. Picnickers from DC fled along with the troops as they fled back to DC, from such notables as Joseph Johnston and Stonewall Jackson. Next, travel to one of the most beautiful and well-preserved antebellum towns in the Shenandoah Valley, Harper’s Ferry, West Virginia. Review the rebellion that was started here in 1859 by the abolitionist John Brown (whose body lies a-moulding in the grave) as his raiders attacked the old Armory.  Enjoy ending your day with a walking tour of this Nation Historic Park.  Overnight in Harpers Ferry.  (B)

 

June 19:  Antietam-Gettysburg

This morning, visit the Antietam National Battlefield, where Union and Confederate armies fought the bloodiest one day battle in North American Military  history.  Visit the sacred Cornfield, Bloody Lane, and Burnside Bridge.  A visit to the National Cemetery here will remind us of the high cost of war.  It was here that President Lincoln issued his great Emancipation Proclamation, abolishing slavery throughout the states.  Next travel to Gettysburg to remember July 1-3, 1863.  Before dinner, visit the north side of the battlefield where early on July 1st John[ Buford and the Union cavalry held the field. Overnight in Gettysburg  (B)

 

June 20: Gettysburg

Today your entire day will be spent at the battlefield universally recognized as the great and decisive battle of the war.  Visit Culp’s Ridge, Cemetery Ridge, Seminary Ridge, the Wheatfield, Peach Orchard, Devil’s Den, and Little Round Top.  We will try to grasp the magnitude of the 3 day battle with 46,000 casualties.  At the National Cemetery we will remember Lincolns word “four score and seven years ago…”  End the day with a visit to the Gettysburg National Visitors Center.  What a wonderful day of remembrance.  Overnight again in Gettysburg  (B)

 

June 21: Washington DC

Today travel to our nation’s capital.  We will end our Civil War journey by visiting Ford's Theatre to remember the tragedy of April 14 with the assassination of the President.  Walk across the street to the Peterson House where, on April 15th Sec of War Stanton will say, “Now he belongs to the ages.”  Next, we will tour Arlington Cemetery with the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns, visit Arlington House, and JFK’s memorial.  View thousands of graves that remember those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom and liberty.  Lastly visit the Iwo Jima Memorial.  Overnight in the DC area.

 

June 22: DC Continued 

Today continue your adventure of the nation's capital by an exterior visit of the Capital and the White House.  See the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, Bill of Rights and more at the National Archives.  We will see all of the Monuments that DC is famous for, some during the day and some at night.  Included are Washington, Lincoln, Vietnam, Korean, WW2, and Martin Luther King memorials.  We will see it all!!!  Overnight again in DC.  (B) 

 

June 23: DC Continued

Today is your free day to enjoy the Smithsonian Museums.  Choices are Air and Space, Natural History, American History, the new African American History, national Portrait Gallery, etc etc etc.  You will love this day.  Overnight again in DC. (Breakfast)

 

June 24: DC-Baltimore

 Today we leave DC and travel to nearby Baltimore.  Your first visit will be to Ft. McHenry to relive the War of 1812 and the birth of our National Anthem.  Head down to the harbor for lunch and then be transferred to the Baltimore airport for your flight home loaded with many memories of the sacrifice that was made to make us the UNITED States of America.  (B)  Overnight in your own bed!!)
