Monday – May 20             WILLIAMSBURG * YORKTOWN * JAMESTOWN
Our first stop this morning is at Yorktown Historical Battlefield, the site where the British troops surrendered to George Washington and the Continental Army in 1781, bringing the successful end to the American Revolution.  Next, we’ll visit nearby Jamestown Settlement and tour the first permanent English settlement in the New World. Then we’re off to historic Colonial Williamsburg for free time on your own. Stroll down its quaint streets, browse through historic trade shops, and drop in at Raleigh Tavern, the meeting place of Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry and other Patriots.

Your tour begins today in Richmond, Virginia’s capital and once the Capitol of the Confederacy. Visit St. John’s Church, where Patrick Henry proclaimed, “Give me liberty or give me death.” After a visit to Richmond, we tour Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s estate and gravesite, with its beautiful gardens and mansion designed by Jefferson himself. Enjoy photo stops and panoramic vistas in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley where we stay the night.  This area was often referred to as the “breadbasket of the Confederacy”.  (B)

Today, we follow much the same route as Lee’s army during the invasion of Pennsylvania. We visit Harper’s Ferry, where John Brown and his “army of liberation” staged their fateful raid on the U.S. arsenal. Continue across Maryland to Gettysburg National Military Park. Our tour of the Gettysburg Battlefield this afternoon will help us better understand the significance of the Civil War battle that took place here during the first three days of July 1863.  You will feel as though you are on hallowed ground.  This evening, enjoy a buffet style dinner.   (B,D)

This morning travel through beautiful Lancaster County. While here we visit Amish Farm Country and enjoy lunch at an Amish restaurant. After lunch we stop at Valley Forge where the Continental Army encamped during the winter of 1777.  Of all the places associated with our War of Independence, perhaps none has come to symbolize perseverance and sacrifice more than Valley Forge. Our hotel tonight is located right across the street from the King of Prussia Mall, the third largest mall in America. Enjoy free time at the many shops and restaurants.   (B,L)

Friday – May 24                 PHILADELPHIA * SALT LAKE CITY
