The Continental Soldier in the American Revolution at the Old Courthouse Museum

February 10, 2020 @ 6:30 pm

Revolutionary SoldierThe American Revolution was America’s first civil war.  It would 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 go from being proud members of the British Empire, to wanting our independence from the mother country in the span of just ten years?

The program will be presented by Mr. Arn Kind, a teacher with over 40 years of experience, in the uniform of a Continental Soldier. He will share the experience of being a soldier in the war that gave birth to our great nation. Through drama and living history experiences, Mr. Kind’s multi-media presentation will give participants an understanding of this turbulent time.  The presenter makes this history come alive for his audience by the realistic and colorful portrayal of the people who participated in these events and the maps, posters, clothing, and artifacts he brings for the audience to see.

The program will be held at the Old Courthouse Museum on Monday, February 10th, with school programs at 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. (limited seating available) and a public performance at 6:30 p.m. Admission is free!

Monday, Feb. 10th 9:30 a.m., 1 p.m. , 6:30 p.m.
