Revolutionary Points of View
Do you love a good debate? Just imagine–It’s the eve of the American Revolution, and there are just as many opinions about war and independence as we hear about in politics today. Step back in time and encounter points of view that run the gamut. Then, engage in the most important debate in our nation’s history–do we remain British or become Americans? In cases of inclement weather this program will be moved into the Capitol building. Learn more here.
