150 years ago, African American soldiers of the U.S. Colored Troops made their large-scale debut in the Virginia theater. During the opening assaults at Petersburg, USCTs broke the Confederate line and later on played a prominent role in the disastrous Battle of the Crater. This tour will focus on these clashes at Petersburg and culminate with a tour of New Market Heights – where the first Medals of Honor given to African Americans in U.S. history were awarded. For reservations, call Ben Lomond Historic Site at 703-367-7872.

Admission Fee: $80 per person, lunch included, reservation required
