What it is
Time Traveler 1776 is a hands-on American Revolutionary War presentation that brings to life the experiences of George Washington’s soldiers using museum-quality reproductions of their weapons, equipment, and uniforms. This is a one-of-a-kind museum experience staged in your classroom or meeting room. Hear, see, smell, touch and sing the Spirit of ’76!
See for yourself
Here’s a sampler of the Time Traveler 1776 presentation that thrilled “brightened the lives of over 60 senior citizens” at the Ingleside at King Farm Continuing Care Retirement Community in Rockville, MD.
Why it works
The Time Traveler, Tom Kuehhas, is not a “recreational reenactor,” but a museum professional with a Masters in American History and over 20 years’ experience teaching and talking about Colonial America. Tom is the unique historian whose excitement is contagious.
As audiences touch the artifacts, try on the uniforms, hear authentic songs and music, and answer Tom’s probing Socratic questions, history comes alive.
Who it’s for
Time Traveler 1776 is suitable for general audiences of all ages, engaging students and seniors alike. Versions for the classroom are available for 3rd grade students and up, each tailored to integrate with the social studies or history lesson plans and curriculum and meet SOL objectives. Other popular versions of the program have been developed for Veterans, for DAR meetings, for museums and historical societies, and for community organizations.
