Middle School visited the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia. The experience was intended to support the Humanities curriculum, which this year includes the study of United States History. The museum is located in the historic district of Philadelphia within walking distance of Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, Carpenters Hall and the First Bank of the United States. The key artifact of their collection is George Washington’s tent, which was used as his office throughout the war. After leaving the museum students had lunch at Campo’s Cheesesteaks on Market St. and then dessert a The Franklin Fountain, a 19th century style ice-cream parlor and soda fountain.
Lunch gets a thumbs up!
“From the early stirrings of unrest in Boston to the opening shots of the War of Independence, and from signing of the Declaration of Independence to the creation of the American Republic, the Museum’s core exhibition explores the ideas, events, and legacies of America’s revolutionary beginnings.” Find out more about Museum of the American Revolution.
