Description
"Twelve Rebels Hidden in Washington, DC" focuses on the quest for freedom and a "more perfect union", which has been drawing heroes and rebels from around the world since America's beginnings. Certified Master Guide Tony Spadafora takes you off the beaten path to meet heroes hidden in DC. Some fought for Washington's revolutionary ideals overseas; others struggled to bring about the "more perfect union" which the Constitution proclaims is possible. These magnificent people brought women's, civil, and workers' rights into being in surprising ways. "We shall be as a shining city upon a hill," puritan John Winthrop proclaimed. "The eyes of the world are upon us." And what will they see? Two of our 'rebels' carried Washington's revolutionary ideals into battle overseas. Most stood for civil, women's and worker's rights. One planned the original March on Washington . . . back when Martin Luther King was eleven. Another was the first to organize "First Amendment Activity" outside the White House. One donated his bonus from the American Revolution, a war which he made p0ssible to win. All saw ideals to make not just a more perfect union, but a more perfect world. Like the eye on the back of a dollar bill, they looked forward, towards "A New Order of the Ages".
