Among His Troops: George Washington’s War Tent and the Mystic Chords of Memory with Dr. R. Scott Stephenson
Among His Troops: George Washington’s War Tent and the Mystic Chords of Memory with Dr. R. Scott Stephenson is President & CEO of the Museum of the American Revolution.
In this richly illustrated lecture, Scott Stephenson will explore the history and significance of General George Washington’s mobile field headquarters, a linen sleeping and office tent that sheltered our first Commander-in-Chief during the Revolutionary War. The original tent, now housed and displayed in Philadelphia’s Museum of the American Revolution, had a rich and dramatic life following the death of George and Martha Washington, with a remarkable cast of characters from Lafayette to Robert E. Lee to an Episcopal priest with a crazy idea. You’ll love it.
