Step into history with Arcadia alumni!

You have probably heard of America’s Founding Fathers—George Washington, Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and that famously musical statesman Alexander Hamilton—but there’s so much more to the story of America’s revolutionary beginnings.

Join Arcadia alumni, families, and friends as we journey back in time during an exclusive, after-hours evening at the Museum of the American Revolution—one of the most anticipated new cultural attractions in the heart of historic Philadelphia!

We will start the evening with a delicious Tuscan-inspired reception prepared by award-winning chef Jean-Marie Lacroix in the Museum’s Liberty Hall, during which Dr. Peter Siskind, assistant professor and chair of the Historical and Political Studies Department at Arcadia, will present an engaging lecture and discussion on “Meanings and Memories of the American Revolution.”

Afterward, you and your guests will be able to explore the museum while it is closed to the public. Walking through the immersive galleries, you will encounter interactive maps, dynamic theaters, and a premier collection of several thousand Revolutionary-era artifacts, including weapons, works of art, manuscripts, personal items, and more.

Don’t miss this opportunity to experience the remarkable story of the American Revolution from its origins to ultimate victory and its continuing relevance.

Kindly RSVP by Friday, Sept. 22, 2017.
