please keep an eye on June 11th... we anticipate changes in the schedule dependent on availability
We hope to provide you early entrance to the National Archives. The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is an independent agency of the United States government charged with the preservation and documentation of government and historical records. It is also tasked with increasing public access to those documents which make up the National Archive. You will have the opportunity to view the United States's Charters of Freedom which include the original United States Declaration of Independence, United States Constitution, United States Bill of Rights, and many other historical documents critical to the development of the United States
The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) is the highest court in the federal judiciary of the United States. Established by Article III of the Constitution, the Court consists of the chief justice of the United States and eight associate justices. Each justice has lifetime tenure. The Court meets in the Supreme Court Building in Washington, D.C. We hope to give the somewhat rare opportunity to visit the Supreme Court Building. While there we hope to participate in a Courtroom lecture with a Judiciary Intern.
Lunch will be at the Supreme Court Cafeteria.... who knows who you might run into!
Afternoon & Evening
There's so much to see and do at Mount Vernon, the home of George and Martha Washington, that time will be at a premium. Included in our tour are..
We have arranged to meet with a genuine Washington Scholar, on site and share a colonial dinner with him at the Mt. Vernon Inn.
