George Washington’s Headquarters Tent
Step inside the world of General George Washington as he leads the Continental Army to victory. The centerpiece of Revolutionary Summer, a replica of Washington's Headquarters Tent is on display in our outdoor courtyard on select weekends this summer. On loan from the Museum of the American Revolution (MoAR), the painstakingly detailed, hand-sewn replica was created in a collaboration between MoAR and Colonial Williamsburg. The Tent is staffed by MoAR educators, who lead visitors on an immersive tour through history.

Living History programming takes place in the courtyard, weather permitting.
In case of severe weather, it might be relocated to Smith Gallery.  


Lead support for Revolutionary Summer provided by The Achelis and Bodman Foundation. Additional support provided by Richard Brown and Mary Jo Otsea. Support for the Museum of the American Revolution’s participation in Revolutionary Summer is generously provided by William and Candace Raveis.
