Starting at the U.S. Capitol and ending at The White House, this walking tour of Civil War sites in Washington, D.C. covers the U.S. Capitol, the U.S. Grant Memorial, the Pension Bureau Building, Ford's Theater—the site of the Lincoln assassination, the site of the hotel where President Andrew Johnson was to be assassinated and later sworn into office, the house where John Wilkes Booth planned his murder of Abraham Lincoln, the Willard Hotel, the statue of General William T. Sherman and The White House. This tour contains none of the annoying advertising contained on free downloads.
Washington began the Civil War as a dusty, desolate place with legalized slavery. As the war ended and America mourned Lincoln’s assassination, it emerged as a national city. We’ll walk you through the history of this transformation in this two-hour tour. Some other things that you will see are:
• Where Lincoln delivered his inaugural addresses with his killers in the audience.
• The theater and boarding house where Lincoln spent his last hours.
• The site of an office on the Underground Railroad.
• The hotel where northern and southern supporters came together.
