Spring Break at the Museum
Each spring during the Revolutionary War, the armies shook the rust off and resupplied. Meanwhile, in Revolutionary Philadelphia, people rolled musket cartridges and sewed flags to supply the army for the long campaigns ahead. This Spring Break, band together to recreate their efforts with hands-on craft demonstrations.On April 18-19, join living history interpreters portraying the “artificers” who served under Philadelphian Benjamin Flower (whose portrait is on display at the Museum) as they repair old equipment and make newgoods for the Continental Army. Join in to stitch a flag, repair a knapsack, and even join the army in the Museum's interactive Discovery Center, Revolution Place.
