See Washington DC lit up at night on this guided bus tour. Drive by and stop at some of the city’s top memorials and attractions, including the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Marine Corps War Memorial, and the Lincoln Memorial, which are usually less crowded after dark. With transportation and navigation taken care of, all you have to do is sit back, relax, and sightsee.

This museum is worth a tour for two reasons. First, it tells the story of Clara Barton’s role in tracking down missing Civil War soldiers on behalf of their families. In addition, the way this building and the artifacts stored in the attic were discovered is fascinating. The

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. You're correct in that Clara Barton's work in searching for missing soldiers is a much less well known aspect of her legacy.and the discovery of her wartime home was truly amazing. Anyone who visits will be treated to these and other incredible true stories from our nation's past.
