The Inter-Faith Fellowship invites everyone to see three different sites in Washington, DC on Thursday, July 18. The group will first visit the beautiful gardens of the Franciscan Monastery, and then take a guided tour of Lincoln’s Cottage. During the Civil War, the Lincolns chose to move their family from the White House to a cottage on a hilltop overlooking the city. From there, Lincoln made nation-changing decisions about the Union, freedom, and the presidency, most notably the Emancipation Proclamation. After a lunch break, the group will visit Fort Stevens, part of the Civil War Defenses of Washington.
The group will gather at The Chapel at 8:30 am to carpool. Volunteer drivers are necessary to make this trip possible . The trip requires extensive walking and standing. RSVP by submitting the form below no later than Thursday, July 11. A non-refundable payment of $12.50 per person is required for the guided tour of Lincoln’s Cottage and is also due by July 11. You may go to the home page and click on Giving to pay the fee or drop your payment off at The Chapel.
