Teacher Testimonial

“As I teach the Revolutionary War, I now have a fresh appreciation and insight for the hardships and battles that took place in creating our new nation. To sit on the hill that overlooks the Battle of Bennington or gaze at the foot hills surrounding Saratoga … there is no computer image that can replace actually being there. I felt so privileged to be given the honor to be on this trip.”

– Kim B. from Florida, 2018 (teacher participant)
