Where was the United States born? The folks at The Journey Through Hallowed Ground Partnership make a strong case for the area in and around the National Scenic Byway, which stretches from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania to Monticello in Virginia. Along this road, visitors will find markets, 10,000 places listed on the National Register of Historic Places, as well as additional sites associated with the Revolutionary War and other defining military conflicts. On their website, visitors can view an interactive map of the route, watch videos that talk about key moments and places along the route, and also check out the press room. The "Explore by Interest" area, found at the bottom of the homepage, gives users the ability to peruse sections that highlight thematic collections of places and events. These areas include "African American Heritage", "Colonial", and "Historic Buildings". Under the "Education" tab found at the top of the homepage, visitors can find materials for teacher development, lesson plans, and field trip guides. Visitors may also want to follow the Partnership on Facebook or sign up for their eNewsletter.
