Tauck held its first Civil War Event last year in Washington, D.C., with tickets selling out after just 10 days. This year, they’re doing it again…twice.

With two events, beginning May 20 and again Oct. 14, Tauck will guide guests through a historical experience of the Civil War, with daily themes including The Meaning of Freedom, Lincoln’s War and The People’s War. During the event, guests will take walking tours of historic venues, visit sites including the Frederick Douglass House and the African-American Museum of the Civil War, plus three after-hours evening events in separate historic buildings after they’ve closed to the public for the day.

The events are crafted in cooperation with Ken Burns, director of the documentary film, “The Civil War,” and will feature a keynote address by him as well as a chance to personally meet him during an interactive evening inside the National Archives.

Rates for both dates start at $3,990 pp dbl, including airport transfers, most meals, admission to all sites and attractions, guides, all evening programs and entertainment, luggage handling and taxes. Accommodations are also included at the guests’ choice of five-star Washington, D.C., properties: Willard Intercontinental, St. Regis Washington, D.C. and Hay-Adams Hotel.
