Support the Museum of the American Revolution
December 7, 2009
It is hard to believe that America's War of Independence ended 226 years ago, yet there is still no national museum that tells the epic struggle that forged our Nation. I'm sure you will agree that such a museum is long overdue.
Together, we have the extraordinary opportunity to build the first national museum to tell the entire story of the American Revolution and its enduring legacy. This museum—The Museum of the American Revolution—will be a living memorial to those who sacrificed so that we might be free.
Located in historic Philadelphia, just steps away from Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, the First and Second Banks of the United States, Carpenters Hall and Christ Church, the Museum will house The American Revolution Center's distinguished collection of Revolutionary-era objects, artifacts, art, manuscripts and rare books. These authentic witnesses to our Nation's birth will bring the extraordinary stories of the entire Revolutionary generation to life in engaging, accessible and interactive exhibits and educational programs.
We are inviting you to be part of this historic cause which will honor our Revolutionary forbearers.
A gift to The American Revolution Center will support planning for the new Museum as well as our ongoing activities, some of which are described in this newsletter. You may be particularly interested in the article about our recent national survey of adult Americans and their interest in and knowledge of the American Revolution and its enduring legacy. The results demonstrate that the need is great and the time is now for The Museum of the American Revolution. To make a gift, please click here.
Together, we can ensure that rising generations will be inspired to pass on the torch of liberty that was first lit over two and a quarter centuries ago.
