Picture the spring 1778, and the British Army has taken control of Philadelphia. For the Continental Army soldiers, it is a defeat that they are eager to avenge, and for the British soldiers, it could mean the end of their long journey. However, for the spies who are running between them, it presents a chance to alter history.  

Join Museum educators and fellow history-minded friends to bring history to life and observe how your choices as a Continental soldier, British soldier, or spy can transform the course of history. With the use of characters, maps, replica objects, and images from the Museum's exhibits, you can create your own character and delve into history through missions, games, puzzles, and storytelling.
