    ALL DAY!



    A one-day, two-part walking tour that will be nothing short of a Washington Walks' "greatest hits" experience. Lots of sites, lots of guides, lots of memories!  Final destination: a D.C. spot where the 20th anniversary celebration will continue with drinks and nibbles.  Details to come! 

    founded August 1999

    Join us for an evening to mark the anniversary of the encampment of French troops in our neighborhood in 1782 on their march north after the Siege of Yorktown—the only time a foreign army has ever camped within the boundaries of the present District of Columbia.

    Documentary Screening

    The Lafayette Escadrille
    Wednesday, August 7

    6:30 p.m.
    Free admission
    At the beginning of World War I, young Americans rushed to France as volunteers to defend America’s oldest ally. The Lafayette Escadrille, the only all-American squadron in the French Air Service, is the subject of a new documentary film co-directed by Paul Glenshaw. Following the film screening, Glenshaw will comment on the production, including presenting the deep connections several of the pilots had to the Revolution and to the Society of the Cincinnati.
