Experience Our Nation Like Never Before

Join Go Learn and trip leader (and beloved Osher professor!) Larry Gerlach as we learn the good, the bad, and the ugly of a very specific slice of American history—a century of events leading up to the signing of the Declaration of Independence and immediately after the end of the Revolutionary War. We will travel from Historic Jamestown to the United States’ first capital city, Philadelphia, to hear the stories of not only those who helped unite the British colonies politically but of those whose contributions have been overlooked in our history books. From the earliest settlements to the signing of the Treaty of Paris, this 10-day journey through time will guarantee that you will never again think about Independence Day in quite the same way as before.
