Explore Stories of Unsung Revolutionaries During Black History Month at the Museum

Celebrate Black History Month and explore the stories of unsung Revolutionaries at the Museum of the American Revolution this February. Through the opening of a new special exhibition, an engaging forum on race, theatrical performances, and more, visitors can experience a more inclusive – and thus, more accurate – history of our nation’s founding. A highlight of the month will be the grand opening of the Museum’s newest special exhibition, "Witness to Revolution: The Unlikely Travels of Washington’s Tent," which opens Saturday, Feb. 17.
