Education has always been a cornerstone of our democratic republic. Tyler Putman, Manager of Gallery Interpretation, explores our “Educating Citizens” gallery for National Teacher Appreciation Day as part of National Teacher Appreciation Week with the Museum, sponsored by American Heritage Credit Union.

Learn how important education became in the years following the Revolutionary War, and discover how parents were teaching their children from home in the early republic, much as people are doing today.
