    What to Expect
    Your walking tour starts outside St. John's Church in Washington DC, where you'll meet your guide and set off on your tour, learning about Abraham Lincoln's last day in the White House. 

    Continue to Lafayette Square Park to see Civil War–era homes and buildings, which set the scene for the rest of your exploration. Stop outside the home of Lincoln's theater guests from the night he was assassinated, and walk along Pennsylvania Avenue for a look at other places associated with that night. Your tour ends when you reach Ford's Theatre; go behind the venue to see where John Wilkes Booth made his escape after shooting the president.

    During your walk, enjoy photographs and stories from your guide about Washington during the years of the Civil War. Walking distance is roughly 1 mile (1.6 km).

    Canden was our tour guide and she did such a great job setting the scenes and telling the stories. My 13 year old twins loved it and that is saying something! Thank you so much for a wonderful evening in DC.
