Imagining the American Revolution
October 7, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
The work of early American artists like John Trumbull and Benjamin West influence how Americans imagine their revolutionary history. Images of the Battle of Bunker Hill, the crossing of the Delaware, the victory at Yorktown and Washington’s resignation are national icons, and shape how we think about those events.
In this workshop, teachers (5th grade and up, but especially geared for high school) will analyze historical images of the Revolutionary War, highlighting its international dynamics, important people, decisive events, and more. Participants will receive all images digitally, along with a printed reproduction of the most important American map of the Revolutionary War.
