    Day 1 Gettysburg

    Passengers will be picked up in Washington, DC at 8:00am. From there, we will depart for Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, a town steeped in history. Spend a day devoted to a tour of the town and its historic battlefield.

    Receive an introduction to life as a soldier during the Civil War, at the Farnsworth House. You will have a hands-on soldier experience in an encampment as you prepare for a day of battle. Follow a soldier to the attic of Farnsworth House for a sharpshooter's view of Cemetery Hill, while also seeing relics from the battlefield.

    Visit Gettysburg's new Visitor Center. View the 22-minute introductory film, narrated by Morgan Freeman, and visit the cyclorama, a unique experience featuring a 360-degree painting of the battle's third day, narrated by Marcia Gay Harden. The Visitor Center also has a comprehensive museum that explores the time leading up to the battle of Gettysburg, the battle itself, and the long-lasting effects on the town of Gettysburg long after the war concluded in 1865.

    The trip concludes with a comprehensive, two-hour tour of the Gettysburg battlefield. Led by award-winning guides, the tour covers every breathtaking moment of the historic battle!

    Time for lunch is provided, but you are own your own for lunch.

    At the end of the day, we will return to the departure point for dropoff. See "Departure and Return Details" for more information.
