EXHIBIT - American Revolution Experience

April 20 – 27, 2024 · 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Visitor Center

For one week, as part of a national tour, KTM&HC is hosting the "American Revolution Experience" traveling exhibit. This pop-up exhibit is one component of a collaborative project between the American Battlefield Trust and the Daughters of the American Revolution that will mark the 250th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence: America250. 

The banners introduce visitors to a cast of historical characters, bringing to life their diverse experiences during the Revolutionary War. The American Revolution Experience invites visitors to consider the choice faced by members of the revolutionary generation as tensions mounted in the 1770s: Would these ordinary citizens risk their lives and livelihoods in pursuit of liberty? Or would they remain loyal subjects of the British crown, coming into conflict with neighbors and family? The exhibit surfaces diverse viewpoints and experiences, touching on the journeys — both literal and figurative — of Patriots and Loyalists, men and women, Black and Native populations and even international allies. Rather than focusing only on generals and famous statesmen, it introduces audiences to drummer boys, military mapmakers and other ordinary people who were impacted by global events.  

Thank you to the Cannon Ridge Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution for bringing this exciting exhibition to KTM&HC!
