Project Description

In Freedom’s Footsteps: Philadelphia to Washington, DC

Discover the nation’s economic expansion and industrial growth… 18th-century social and religious movements… the Civil War… political diversity… and the defining themes that shaped the American experience century upon century. Travel back in time to walk in the footsteps of American history… In Philadelphia, enjoy a private tour of the Museum of the American Revolution, ride a horse-drawn carriage along cobblestone streets, step inside Independence Hall, and see the Liberty Bell. Tour the poignant battlefields of Gettysburg, where a storyteller reveals what it was like to be a civilian during the Civil War battle at a private Tauck dessert reception. Visit George Washington’s home at Mount Vernon… meet 18th-century “residents” and dine at a colonial tavern in Colonial Williamsburg… and explore the spectacular monuments of America’s capital.
