OKLAHOMA CITY -- As President-elect Obama takes his oath of office several Oklahomans will be there to witness history.

Girl Scout Troop 17 is on the road. They are headed to our Nation's capitol for a live history lesson.

"It's going to be really cool because he's our first African-American President and a lot of people are going to be there," Girl Scout Jon Bonae Carey said.

The girls will also get a tour of the Capitol and participate in the Martin Luther King Parade in Baltimore on Monday.
