Mt. Vernon and Arlington Cemetery Bus Tour *
Early Bird Price: $99 per person
Tour runs from 8AM-6:30PM
Mt. Vernon is the plantation home of America’s first President, George Washington. You will learn of his importance of the man who would lead Colonial America to independence. We will talk about Washington’s Christian faith and the attempts to paint him as a deist wallowing in the humanism of the Enlightenment. We will also discuss some of his weaknesses. His passion for farming and taking dominion over the land was evident to all in the re-creation of his home and properties. A visit to Mt. Vernon is only the preliminary to returning there again someday to learn and see more of the man Providence chose to unite Americans under the Constitution.
Arlington House is the former plantation home of General Robert E. Lee. Lee was a brilliant general and a man of great Christian character. Lee’s home affords a bird’s eye view of the Capitol like no other.
Arlington Cemetery is one of the most important cemeteries in the United States, and it lies just across the Potomac River from the capitol, in Arlington, Virginia. It is the final resting place of 400,000 soldiers, including the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the graves of 367 Medal of Honor recipients. How thankful we ought to be to God for his Grace in giving our nation a sacrificial spirit to defend the Republic.
