Service Description

Often described as the most historically significant plot of land in America. Over more than 200 years of momentous events and political intrigue have occurred within sight of the White House and the Andrew Jackson statue. Lincoln has not gotten his due here, until now. The country lawyer from Illinois learned to be both the master of his own government and commander-in-chief in the homes around this park. Standing here during the Civil War, you would have witnessed a very determined President with or on his way to see the generals who needed to be ordered to act to avert disaster. This tour is a walk around Lafayette Square identifying the significance to Abraham Lincoln of many of the buildings and landmarks. Allow one and a half hours. Tour begins at the Jackson statue in the park (which, sculpted and cast in 1853 by Clark Mills, was the first statue of a person on horseback ever cast in the United States).
