AmRev360: Inspiring a Love of HistoryAugust 12, 2021
Learning history and understanding how seemingly bygone eras brought us to the present is crucial for any student. But how do we take that one step further to inspire a love of history?
The Museum's AmRev360 series returns as Museum President & CEO Dr. R. Scott Stephenson is joined by Martha Meehan-Cohen, Director of Advancement for the Supreme Court Historical Society, and David Bruce Smith, founder of the Grateful American Foundation and author of the children's book Abigail & John, for a discussion about their work to spread greater excitement, engagement, and interest in American history. The discussion takes place in the Museum’s special summer exhibition Flags and Founding Documents, 1776 – Today.
For more, listen as Meehan-Cohen interviews Smith about the uneasy alliance between George Washington and John Adams and the two founders' mentorship of Chief Justice John Marshall.
AmRev360 features lively conversations on the American Revolution from all angles between Stephenson and a broad slate of dynamic guests, including authors, actors, community leaders, and more.
