Connecting You With Us
Tour guiding is a joy. Sometimes it's hard work. Sometimes it's both. Our journal chronicles the ongoing voyage. Here we keep you connected with our tours, videos, audiobooks, upcoming events and American history tidbits. Plus, it's a good platform to share our general observations and mindless musings.
Birthday week has come to a close. We end our journey by celebrating Susan B. Anthony, born this day in 1820!
Douglass himself was never certain of the day he was born, but February 14th is the day he chose to record as his birthday. So Happy Valentines Day, and Happy Birthday FREDERICK DOUGLASS
A thousand pardons for DC’s Boy Scout Memorial. Ever since it was unveiled on the White House Ellipse in 1964, your memorial has elicited mockery. Why? In truth - it’s odd and vaguely upsetting to look at.
After YEARS of anticipation I FINALLY got to see Hamilton on Broadway ⭐️ @hamiltonmusical is now also playing London, Chicago and out on tour! The show has recently become much more accessible, but it’s still really pricey! Did it live up to the hype?! Is it worth the extra coins to experience this show live?
Rachel and I wanted to create a truly unique experience that would join all the great multi-sensory elements of our A La Carte Tours with the exclusivity of a VIP experience - I think we’ve succeeded.
Professor Jeanne Theoharis is referencing Baldwin’s ‘talk to teachers’ in the title of this necessary and timely book. “A More Beautiful & Terrible History” explores what the author refers to as the “national fable” of the Civil Rights Movement. She offers a fuller, more nuanced understanding that often stands in contrast to the popularized and watered down rendering of the same narrative.
Today is a special video review of Peter Jackson’s groundbreaking WWI documentary, They Shall Not Grow Old. I was fortunate enough to attend a special screening here in DC. Unsurprisingly, I walked away with a multitude of thoughts. Perhaps you’d care to hear them? Spoiler alert: I loved it.
Our interactive tours connect present to past with Sensory Supplements! See, hear, taste, smell, and touch history with Historic America!
Today we take a moment to appreciate the beer can! Space saving—they’re so stackable! Way less breakable than glass and cans get cold quick! Once your can is chilled, its easy-peasy to pop open and ENJOY! Cheers, and HOPPY Beer Can Appreciation Day!
