The trip is designed as an intensive travel experience in Washington, D.C., Williamsburg, Virginia, and surrounding key historic sites to be visited during the one-week trip. We will visit George Washington’s Mount Vernon and Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello. We will walk the ground that Revolutionary Soldiers fought on for our freedom. We will also visit the National Cathedral in Washington, DC and spend time visiting a number of other key sights in DC. Likewise, we will take an in-depth look at how teamwork and collaboration were essential elements in the American Revolution and the framing of our U.S. Constitution.
