Off the Beaten Path: Lincoln’s Cottage

NEW! Off the Beaten Path: Lincoln’s Cottage
1 session, 8 hours

Lincoln’s Cottage, a little-known National Trust Historic Site in Washington, DC, was only 3 miles from the White House, yet it had a major influence on Lincoln’s Presidency for 18 months. Visit the cottage and explore the nearby United States Soldiers’ and Airmen’s Home National Cemetery as well, a site containing 5,000 Union Soldier graves. This information-packed trip includes lunch. (Please note, the Pre-Trip class requires separate registration and is optional. Information regarding the pre-trip class is provided below.)

Instructor: Peg Mauzy retired from FCC after 23 years of teaching English and Study Skills courses. She was also the Learning Consultant and the International Education Coordinator for the London Study Abroad Program. Peg loves learning about the United States history, especially Presidential information. She will hold a one-day class prior to the Cottage Trip in order to maximize the experience, examine the setting of the Cottage and the near-by National Military Cemetery, identify multiples Lincoln resources from websites to books, discuss the importance of this Cottage setting on Lincoln’s Presidency, and then accompany the group on the “Lincoln’s Cottage” (National Trust Historic Site) and National Military Cemetery Trip.
