Pennsylvania Dutch and Gettysburg
Students witness first hand the evolution of American Civilization as they tour this peaceful countryside dotted with one-room schoolhouses and windmills. The Amish community still lives here without the use of electricity or motor vehicles. This experience gives students a vivid point of comparison for the modern amenities that are a normal part of their everyday worlds.
Gettysburg: The Battle of Gettysburg, where thousands of Americans fought and died for their cause, lasted for only three days, but changed the course of American history for future generations. Students visiting this haunting battleground learn to connect the events of history with the human aspects and tragic consequences of the war that not only tore America apart, but also put it back together again.
