We will fly into Washington Dulles Airport, then bus to the restored Revolutionary Era Town of Williamsburg; Jamestown, the site of the first English settlement in America; and Yorktown Battlefield where George Washington won the climatic battle of the Revolutionary War. From there, we will tour such historical sites as Appomattox Court House where Lee surrendered his army to U S Grant; to Monticello, home of Thomas Jefferson; to the Shenandoah Valley, Luray Caverns, the Skyline Drive and the Appalachian Trail; Harpers Ferry, site of John Browns revolt; then explore Gettysburg Battlefield, the turning point of the Civil War; and finish up with Fort McHenry, site of the Star Spangled Banner and the City of Annapolis and the U. S. Naval Academy and maybe even a cruise on the Chesapeake.
