Podcast #103 - Gettysburg Day 2 - A Trip to Washington DC and Eating Period Food

Hello. Day 2 at the Gilder Lehrman Institute on Lincoln was a field trip to Washington DC. We loaded up the bus with the 30 or so teachers participating in the workshop and headed off to visit a few specific Lincoln sites in the nation’s capital. Sites included the White House, the Soldiers Home and Lincoln Memorial. The Soldiers Home was basically Lincoln’s summer White House and I plan to do a future podcast on this site, which will open to the public in February of 2008.

I also ate an authentic Civil War era dinner at the Historic Farnsworth Inn in Gettysburg, picked up a few items to bring back to the classroom and walked through the cemetery at sunset. It was a full day to say the least. We also saw President Bush – sort of – and his entourage. Listen to the podcast for more details.
