Elitist Universities Will No Longer Teach American History, but We Can!

Ivy League universities on the East Coast have announced they will no longer require American History classes for students to graduate. The professors contend American college students need more World history than American history. Their global careers will require it. Costly American universities say they can attract more foreign students too, who will pay higher prices for an education, if they are taught World history above American history. In fact, George Washington University in D.C. will no longer require American history be learned at all, even though it's named for our nation's First Founding Father. GW wants to have more foreign students enrolled. Foreign students can graduate from GW without understanding clearly who George Washington was and what he did. In response to elitist universities saying they will no longer promote American History the Fun & Fitness Travel Club is offering a "land cruise" through Washington, D.C. in July 2017. It will stop at the most famous places in our nation's Capital for 4 Days and 3 Nights. This package celebrates America's history at a cost of $810 per person based on double occupancy. July is prime time in Washington, D.C. Hence, the tour group is limited to 40 guests. The club's private bus and hotel rooms can accommodate exactly 40 guests for this private tour. Book today. Tour package details, an order form and reservation instructions are below. If you love American History and want a refresher course, this tour is for you!
