Registration is now closed for this event.
Follow historical roads and live American history as you leave Washington, DC on your way to your final destination of Virginia Beach. Along the way, you will pass by Mt. Vernon, the home of our Founding Father and first President George Washington, the famous civil war battlefields of Manassas or Bull Run as the North called it, Fredericksburg, Mechanicsville, and the capitol of the Confederacy - Richmond. As you wind your way though the heart of the Confederacy, suddenly you will find yourself in Colonial America and the settlements of Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown stopping in the heart of the largest military bases in the U.S. The event ends with a USO sponsored VIP concert experience and community event.
