Who is Congressman Sickles and How Did He Get Away with Murder?
Washington Walks Offers Villages Free Virtual Session
Saturday, February 13 at 3:00 pm
When Southwest resident Carolyn Crouch picked up a brochure for a walking tour in London while on vacation in the 1990s, she had no idea she was embarking on a new career. It would be one of the most important moments in her life, as it was the catalyst for her to establish one of the most celebrated tourism companies in the District, Washington Walks.
While the pandemic did sideline walking tours for 2020, it also encouraged Carolyn and her staff to build out their virtual offerings. Although they don’t have the impact of standing on the exact spot where history took place, the virtual environment provides the guides with a better medium for telling important and compelling stories that aren’t location based.
One such story is about Congressman Sickles who murdered a man in Lafayette Park. Crouch is offering DC Villages an opportunity to experience the virtual tour of this event on February 13 at 3:00. While perhaps not a classic romance story, it does involve a love triangle and the son of one of the best-known Americans in history. You can sign up for the virtual tour on the Waterfront Village website.
