F309 Fall 2019 The City of Magnificent Intentions (Park Rangers)
Thursdays, 2:15–3:40, Sept. 26–Nov. 14
Coordinator: Brad Berger
The author Charles Dickens, during his visit to the United States in the early 1840s, described Washington, DC as the city of magnificent intentions. This course will examine what factors led this famous author to describe the nation’s capital as such and how the city has changed. The changing face of Washington will be explored by noting landmarks and buildings which define the metropolitan area.
National Park Service Rangers have participated with OLLI since 2001 in offering scores of thematic courses, special events, and trips.
