Join fellow Museum Members on the first Sunday of every month for special Members-only tours of our galleries, special exhibitions, and historic neighborhood.
On Sunday, Aug. 6, at 9:30 a.m., Museum Members are invited to join a Museum educator for a 30-minute gallery talk exploring the roles of Revolutionary-era women on the homefront and on campaign during the Revolutionary War. Along the way, see artifacts like an intricately carved busk (part of a woman’s undergarments) and a signed copy of the 1773 book Poems on Various Subjects by Phillis Wheatley, and learn what the stories of Revolutionary women like the Baroness von Riedesel, Tyonajanegen (Two Kettles Together), and Elizabeth Freeman reveal about how different people experienced and remembered the Revolution.
