Civil War Washington Cemetery Tour
Saturday, April 4, 2020: 1:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Join Ford's Edu as we explore two historic cemeteries nestled in Georgetown: Oak Hill Cemetery and Mount Zion Cemetery.
At Oak Hill, visit the mausoleum where President Lincoln mourned his son, Willie. See where Confederate spies are buried in the same hallowed ground as Lincoln’s Secretary of War, Edwin Stanton. At Mount Zion, learn about the vibrant African-American community in 19th-century Georgetown. Question how the preservation of these two cemeteries reflects how we remember the African-American and white communities of Georgetown and the Civil War in Washington today.
This event is free. Open to past participants of the Summer Teacher Institutes
