Brave Men as Ever Fought, painted by Don Troiani, 2020. Museum of the American Revolution, Funded by the National Park Service Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route National Historic Trail

This Veterans Day, experience the premiere of the Museum's newest first-person theatrical performance, "Meet James Forten," exploring Forten’s life as a free Black Philadelphian, Revolutionary War veteran, and stalwart abolitionist. Following the live performance, join playwright Marissa Kennedy and actor Nathan Alford-Tate along with Museum staff members Michael Idriss, African American Interpretive Fellow, and Tyler Putman, Senior Manager of Gallery Interpretation, for a talkback discussion about how and why this new theatrical piece was created and why Forten’s story continues to resonate with audiences today.

The Museum’s Curator of Exhibitions Matthew Skic will provide opening remarks about "Brave Men as Ever Fought," a new painting by nationally renowned historical artist Don Troiani that shows a significant moment in Forten’s life. The painting, which is featured in the special exhibition Liberty: Don Troiani’s Paintings of the Revolutionary War, open now, was commissioned with funding from the Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route National Historic Trail of the National Park Service.
