The American Revolution Center: Who Cares? Test Your Knowledge on the Retooled Website
PHILADELPHIA – October 12, 2011 – The American Revolution Center (the “Center”) has retooled its website (www.AmericanRevolutionCenter.org), with new, interactive features. Visitors to the site now have the opportunity to take the Center’s national survey, The American Revolution: Who Cares? and compare their answers filtered by state, political affiliation, gender and income. The 2009 survey demonstrated the overwhelming interest adult Americans have in learning more about the American Revolution. As the Center moves forward to establish The Museum of the American Revolution, educational content is offered through the website.
About The Museum of the American Revolution:
The Museum of the American Revolution will tell the complete story of the American Revolution using its distinguished collection of objects, artifacts, artwork, and manuscripts. Permanent and special exhibition galleries, theaters, and large-scale tableaux will bring to life the original “greatest generation,” and engage people in the history and continuing relevance of the American Revolution. Construction is now underway for the new Museum that is being built steps away from Independence Hall, Carpenter’s Hall, Franklin Court, and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier of the Revolution. It will serve as a portal to the nation’s many Revolutionary sites, sparking interest, providing context and encouraging explorations that begin at the Museum’s doorstep. The Museum is a private, non-profit organization. For more information, visit www.AmRevMuseum.org or call toll free, 877-740-1776.
