Hello

Thanks for visiting this site considering our programs. I am dedicated to delivering to you a fun, educational, and overall worthwhile experience whether you're visiting solo, touring with family, or managing a school field trip.

A little about me: I have fifteen years of practice in the field of experiential education including teaching civics and American history, helping people learn though documenting the built environment, and interpreting monuments and memorials in artistic and historical contexts. My work has included teacher professional development, museum education for a general audience, and teaching K-12 students. 

I look forward to working with your family, tour group, or school as we tailor a unique DC experience for your next visit to the nation's capital. Thanks for your time!

Originally founded as Liberty DC Tours in 2009, AttucksAdams continues to provide a quality touring experience to visitors of Washington, DC. Our mission is to decode the language of Washington, making your time in DC memorable, educational, and fun! We changed the name to AttucksAdams in 2015. So, what does it mean?

Crispus Attucks was the first person killed in the Boston Massacre and widely considered to be the first casualty in the American Revolutionary War. "The first to defy, and the first to die," Attucks symbolized the beginning of a conflict that would transform the preeminent British colonial territory into the United States of America. Some of Attucks' personal history and background are lost to history, but he was a person of color and his death at the hands of the British presaged the complex and important role Black Americans played both in the Revolution and in the establishment of the United States of America.

John Adams served as the first Vice President of the United States and the second President of the United States. He was the first President to occupy the newly finished White House. With the Supreme Court, Congress, and the President all present in the District of Columbia, Adams' tenure marked the first time that Washington was fully realized as the capital city and the home to all three branches of American government. Although he served as President of the newly independent United Sates, John Adams is also known as the lawyer for a British Captain Preston -- charged with murder of Crispus Attucks and others at the Boston Massacre. Under Adams' representation, Preston was acquitted.
