Day 4

By Abby Hanson and Mason Henry

Wake up calls came at 6:45 a.m. We loaded the bus at 7:30 and left the hotel at 8 a.m. We first headed to Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s home. The 43-room mansion was surrounded by botanical gardens and had two long terraces on either side. These served as walkways, as well as a way to collect water. Underneath the terraces were an ice house, stables for horses, a wine cellar, and the kitchen. Guests that visited Monticello at the time hardly ever saw slaves because they were always working under the terraces.

After seeing the extravagant mansion, we loaded the bus and drove to Richmond, Va. We drove down Monument Boulevard and saw statues of famous generals, including Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee. Our next stop was the 5-star Berkley Hotel for lunch.

Jamestown was our next stop. We learned all about the first settlement in America. We visited one building where they did glass blowing. Everyone was able to take a lot of pictures, including the familiar “falling down the well” pose. We even spent a few minutes on the beach of the James River.

Next we went to our hotel and had time for supper. Our final trip was into Old Williamsburg for a candlelit evening of colonial dancing at the Capitol. It was fun to see the difference between the professionals and our classmates dancing! Afterward we walked through the town to the public stocks. Here we could put in our head and hands, or our feet, to see what it was like to be a prisoner back then. Our final destination was back at the hotel where we were finally able to take a break after such a long day.

Day 5

By Christine Lee, Chelcie Busch, and Kaysey Lund

On day five we visited Colonial Williamsburg, Va. We started off with a tour of the Governor’s Palace. The Governor’s Palace was a very big building filled with bright- colored walls and numerous bedrooms. After the tour we were given a couple hours to tour on our own. We split into groups and began to visit small buildings set up to look like they were from Colonial times. Some places to visit were the Mental Institution, Jail house, Apothecary, and the Bakery. People who worked there were dressed up to look like they were from that time. This made it seem as if we were a part of that time as well. It was interesting to see how they lived back then.

In Williamsburg there is the famous Co .....
