This morning we travel to Washington DC. Our first stop will be at President Lincoln’s Cottage. During the Civil War, the Lincolns moved their family from the White House to this hilltop cottage overlooking the city for three summers in a row. Lincoln made nation-changing decisions during these times, most notably the Emancipation Proclamation. After lunch on your own at Union Station, we will spend the afternoon enjoying DC. A delicious dinner will be included at Carmine’s before we check into our hotel, the Hampton Inn in Alexandria, VA. CD  
Today we turn our attention to President George Washington, and a tour of one of the nation’s most beloved historic sites, Mount Vernon. It gives us a glimpse into 18th century plantation life as we explore the beautiful grounds and gardens. We will also have a tour of the impressive 21-room mansion. A bountiful lunch is included at Mount Vernon Inn. As we head home, we will be thinking about all the history we have seen and enjoyed on this trip.  CL
