Southwest Walk

I think this might have been our last field trip for the year. This DC history class has been amazing.

I'd put this walk in my top five of DC heritage walks.  It includes a bit of colonial/federal history, some industrial history (even though you can't see it anymore), slavery history since the Pearl left from the waterfront here, and then plenty to learn about race, poverty, politics, property, and government.  And some architecture too.
