Thursday Thirteen (plus 2) on Friday - Contest - Updated with Answers

Mom said we could have a little contest. As we said yesterday, Mom will be leaving us in a week to go to the Washington DC area. All of these pictures are of places that Mom will be visiting with her students. We decided to have a contest to see if any of you could name each of the places. They are all within about 2-3 hours of Washington DC and range from Virginia to Pennsylvania and they all have to do with American history (with the exception of one). The picture number is below the picture. The first cat (etc.) to guess all correct (or the one who comes closest) will win a prize package. We will also have a 2nd and 3rd place winner. Good luck and have fun.Picture 1 - Valley Forge, PA

Picture 2 - Amish Country (We are giving this to everyone as we weren't very specific)

Picture 3 - Liberty Bell, Philadelphia, PA

Picture 4 - Independence Hall - Philadelphia, PA

Picture 5 - Arlington National Cemetery

Picture 6 - Gettysburg Battlefield - Gettysburg, PA

Picture 7 - The White House - Washington DC

Picture 8 - The Supreme Court Building - Washington DC

Picture 9 - The United States Capitol Building - Washington DC

Picture 10 - Lincoln Memorial - Washington DC

Picture 11 - Yorktown Historical Battlefield - Yorktown, VA

Picture 12 - Capitol Building in Historic Williamsburg - Williamsburg, VA

Picture 13 - Monticello (Jefferson's home) - outside of Charlotte, VA


Picture 14 - Mt. Vernon (Washington's Home) - Near Alexandria, VA

Picture 15 - Jamestowne, VA (We are not sure of the exact name of the ship - but the ones who answered said the Godspeed).

Good Job Everyone!

Those all look like very interesting places to visit. Unfortunately, being German-Canadian cats, we don't know much about American history. If those were Canadian sites, we would probably know all of them! ;)

We can't name too many of them but mom knows the Liberty Bell & Independence Hall in Philly!!! She wants to go there real bad! But thats just to see the hockey team, the sightseeing would be secondary. She's nuts.
She went to DC as a HS Senior trip in '78. Liked the Smithsonian best!
