Prominent Narrative Historian David O. Stewart Joins Travel Dynamics International on the Chesapeake
NEW YORK, May 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Founded on the belief that traveling and learning about the world enriches individuals and society as a whole, Travel Dynamics International has enlisted the expertise of one of America’s leading narrative historians, David O. Stewart, to bring the rich history of the United States to life.
Guests aboard Travel Dynamics International’s Historic Towns and Sites of the Chesapeake Bay will explore early America alongside some of the country’s most important historical sites. “America was born along the shores of the Chesapeake and the rivers that feed into it. The first permanent English settlement was established at Jamestown. America won her independence at Yorktown. Four of our first five presidents came from this region,” notes Stewart. “Travel Dynamics International has put together an intriguing portrait of American history and culture.”
Stewart’s first book, The Summer of 1787: The Men Who Invented the Constitution, was a Washington Post bestseller. Two years later, Impeached: The Trial of President Andrew Johnson and the Fight for Lincoln’s Legacy, was a Davis-Kidd Bestseller. Stewart’s latest work is American Emperor: Aaron Burr’s Challenge to Jefferson’s America, an examination of Burr’s remarkable Western expedition.
Cruise highlights include visits to Colonial Williamsburg and Tangier Island, where residents speak the 17th-century English of the island’s first settlers. On the James River, experts at Richmond’s American Civil War Center will explain the war from the perspectives of the Confederacy, the Union, and the slaves. Guests will visit Mount Vernon, then relive defining moments of the nation’s history at Petersburg and Yorktown.
Guests will cruise aboard the newest addition to the Travel Dynamics International fleet, the American-flagged Yorktown. Accommodating 138 guests in 69 exterior cabins, Yorktown’s large sundeck, comfortable lounge, and spacious dining room offer the finest small ship experience.
