These men were later caught and tried for deserting the American army, for which they paid the ultimate sacrifice and were publicly hanged.

Sample a city’s finest foods (and learn a few culinary secrets) with these dining-savvy gourmet guides. It’s the hungry tourist’s dilemma: You’re in a new city, you’re excited, you’re famished, and you end up eating at Applebee’s. But what you really want is local food, which is why food-tasting tours are booming. “The number of tours seems to have at least doubled over the past two years, to meet demand,” says Erik Wolf, president of the International Culinary Tourism Association.
Trips offer more than restaurant-hopping. Local tasting tours are half-day, guided outings at handpicked neighborhood markets, shops, popular restaurants, and under-the-radar eateries you won’t find in guidebooks. Typically costing $35 to $65 (depending on length and transportation), they include multiple stops for samplings, demos, and storytelling about local culinary history.
Tours are available across the country, and most can be arranged through Brown Paper Ticketing (800-838-3006) or visit Local Roots Food Tours to find out more about Sacramento’s City of Trees Food Tour.
