History is what real people did, in real places, to make possible the freedom, the happiness and prosperity which we enjoy today. The places are still there, and many of them are not far away. You and your children can visit them. Not "some day" but now - this summer. Just a few delightful hours on a swift, comfortable, safe train and you too can be standing where the great of history stood before. In the very rooms where they lived. On fields where they died to give us the freedom we have never cherished more highly than we do today. Now is the time to visit the places you've always wanted to see. And you can cover so much more ground, see so much more, save time and energy for sight seeing, if you go by rail. Start from any place in the United States-circle from the Atlantic to the Pacific, from North to South with liberal stopovers for sightseeing and back to where you started-all for $90 railroad fare in coaches, $135 if you go Pullman (plus $45 for one or two passengers in a lower berth).
