The museum will immerse you in 245 years of American Soldiers' experiences, with lunch included during our visit. Next, we will travel to Turning Point Suffragist Memorial for a guided tour. Here we will honor the millions of women who fought more than seven decades to win the right to vote. Then at Rippon Lodge, we will learn about the former home of Admiral Richard Blackburn Black and his family's history. Built in 1747, Rippon Lodge is the oldest known home in Prince William County. The Blackburn's have a unique story to tell as it pertains to our nation's independence. Dinner will be included at a local restaurant.

Day 2

We will begin our day with breakfast followed by a special presentation focusing on the Armed Services by a local historian. Next we will pay our respects at Quantico National Cemetery with a private flag placing experience at the graves of veterans whose remains were previously forgotten. Hosted by the Missing in America Project, their mission is to find, identify, and provide full military burial for these now remembered heroes. Our last stop today is the National Museum of the Marine Corps for a self-guided tour. Here you can uncover the history of the marine corps, test your skills as a Marine, and get insight into the lives of those who fight for our freedom. During our visit, we will see the incredible Gene Hackman - narrated film "We, The Marines" to get an unparalleled view into the experiences of Marines from boot camp through modern warfare training and enjoy a boxed lunch. We will then depart for home. With stops for rest & dinner, our arrival is scheduled for later this evening.
