This travel course is designed for those that want to travel to the 'Historic Triangle' in Virginia. Located in southeastern Virginia, and connected by the Colonial Parkway, Jamestown, Williamsburg and Yorktown offer the educator a unique step back into time to various periods in our country's history. From the earliest permanent English settlement in Jamestown in 1607, to a 173-acre living museum which comprises Colonial Williamsburg, ending with the Revolutionary War victory at Yorktown in 1781, participants will walk where 17th and 18th century Englishmen and Americans carved out a nation called the United States of America. In this course, many of the assignments require on-site visitations. The format is traditional which includes a course binder with materials. So, if you're planning to travel to this area, you have the opportunity to earn some credits as well.
