This summer, New-York Historical Society celebrates the American Revolution with a feast of historical displays and programming, including an outdoor installation of a full-scale replica of George Washington's original Revolutionary War campaign tent. Visitors can step inside the so-called "first Oval Office" and experience this founding site of America's democracy. On view on select days, the marquee is a loan from the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia. Also on display are artifacts, a diorama with toy soldiers depicting Washington's encampment, and a recently discovered watercolor by Pierre Charles L'Enfant depicting the Continental Army encamped at Verplanck's Point, New York, in 1782. Throughout the summer, programming explores Washington's leadership, the military footprint along the Hudson River, and the diverse composition of the Revolutionary Army forces, while reenactor encampments bring history to life for visitors of all ages.
