Crafted by Tauck and Ken Burns – New for 2016! Understanding the meaning of freedom and America’s story... One of our newest journeys, crafted by Tauck and filmmaker Ken Burns, explores the meaning of freedom – from the earliest settlement to the Colonial era to the Revolutionary War to building a Republic. Discover the nation’s economic expansion and industrial growth... 18th century social and religious movements... the Civil War... political diversity... and the defining themes that shaped the American experience century upon century. Travel back in time to walk in the footsteps of American history... In Philadelphia, ride a horse-drawn carriage along cobblestone streets, tour Independence Hall, and see the Liberty Bell. Visit the poignant battlefields of Gettysburg, where a storyteller reveals what it was like to be a civilian during the Civil War battle at a private Tauck dessert reception. Discover Jamestown's cultural influences through the eyes of an archaeologist... visit George Washington's home at Mount Vernon... meet 18th-century "residents" and dine at a colonial tavern in Colonial Williamsburg... and tour the spectacular monuments of America's capital.
