It also features a powerful, award-winning theatrical performance, "Freedom Rising", and Signers' Hall.

FIELD TRIP: We will visit the new Museum of The American Revolution. The Museum of the American Revolution has an impressive collection of several thousand objects, works of art, manuscripts and printed works from the period of the American Revolution. The collection began more than a century ago when a history-minded minister in Valley Forge raised funds from around the nation to purchase the original tent that George Washington used as his command center during the American Revolution. It was the beginning of a rich and diverse collection that continues to grow. The collection includes objects that span the scope of the war—from British, French and American arms used in battles to a soldier’s wooden canteen branded “UStates” — at a time when the phrase was merely an aspiration.
