AmRev Seminars

Learn about the compelling stories, diverse people, and complex events of the Revolutionary era that sparked America’s ongoing experiment in liberty, equality, and self-government through readings, virtual talks and tours, and class discussion through five-week AmRev Seminar classes led by Dr. Tyler Putman, Senior Manager of Gallery Interpretation.

Participants in these virtual courses will need access to Zoom meeting software, an internet connection, microphone, and webcam, and will receive complementary readings and resources. Sessions will be recorded for the benefit of participants who miss a session due to a conflict.
