Please note: this event is sponsored by Washington Area Secular Humanists. We are cross-posting in an effort to increase the knowledge and appreciation of 19th century local freethinker Robert G. Ingersoll.
“The Great Agnostic”: Robert G. Ingersoll was a 19th Century champion of Freethought, women’s rights, civil rights, and outspoken critic of the Bible, clergy and religion. This famous orator toured the US and delivered over 1,300 speeches to packed houses. For seven years (1878-1885) Ingersoll lived and worked in Washington, DC. He argued cases before the Supreme Court, lobbied Congress and consulted with Presidents. This tour will visit the sites of his former homes, one on Lafayette Square, and places where he worked and spoke in downtown Washington, DC.
This is the Long Version of the tour: A 1.5 mile walk lasting 2 hours, visiting 11 locations
