Take a walk from the Stamp Act of 1765 through President Washington’s Inauguration in 1789. You’ll experience the spellbinding story of the unbelievable events leading up to the American Revolution. You’ll walk on the same colonial streets where it all happened.
* Hear about the feuding families and political intrigues that pit neighbor against neighbor, patriot against loyalist.
* Listen to stories about real people like John Holt the “Liberty Printer” and Alexander McDougall, leader of the Sons of Liberty.
* Stand where George Washington had the Declaration of Independence read and where he escaped the British during the Battle of NY
* Take a walk through St. Paul’s Chapel, the town’s “Country Church” built in 1766 and still intact today. We’ll also visit some of the graves in the graveyard.
You'll see original documents and hear about events in the words of people who lived them.
