The American Revolution was America’s first civil war. It split the country between Loyalists (those who wanted to stay loyal to the king) and Patriots (those who wanted to separate from Great Britain to become an independent nation). How could we as a people go from being proud members of the British empire, the greatest in the world, to wanting our independence from the mother country in the span of just ten years?
The presenter is Mr. Arn Kind, a teacher with over 40 years’ experience, who will come in the uniform of a Continental Soldier to share with us the experience of being a soldier in the war which gave birth to our great nation. Through drama, role-playing, and living history, Mr. Kind’s multi-media presentation will give participants an understanding of this turbulent time and make history come to life. Admission is free.
