(Ford’s Theater, Archives, SCOTUS, McConnell, NBA) Morning at Ford’s Theater and Museum learning about the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Ford’s Theater was followed by a trip to the National Archives to visit the Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights. Students then had lunch inside the Supreme Court building. After lunch, the group headed outside to meet the director of DoDEA, Mr. Tom Brady. The group then met with the Chief Justice of the United States, Mr. John Roberts. The Chief Justice spent 30 minutes with our students explaining the court and answering any question they had. Supreme Court was followed by a meeting at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office. Students were briefed by a communications director and legislative affairs staffer on their roles. Students were also invited to explore Leader McConnell’s balcony which overlooks the Capitol Dome. Students then met with Rev. Jessie Jackson. Dinner at Union Station and then the group headed to the Verizon Center where the students were treated to a NBA game compliments of the Washington Wizards.
