Me on Jefferson's Rock. In his memoirs, Thomas Jefferson stated this was the most beautiful piece of nature he had ever seen.

John Brown's armory. The site of the abolitionist's revolt that was quelled by US Colonel Robert E. Lee in 1859. Considered a stepping stone towards the Civil War.

I hope you all enjoy the pictures. It was awesome actually visiting a place you grow up learning about in history class. A lot of the individuals in the program are excited to visit other Civil War sights in the area such as Antietem and Manasass (or Bull Run, depending on where you are from) which are also within 50 minutes of Washington, DC.
