Sat, November 9th, 2019 |

Free with Museum Admission
All ages

Listen to stories about life on and off the battlefield from soldiers who served during the American Revolution. Meet reenactors from the 3rd New Jersey Regiment, ask them about their uniforms, handle their equipment, and try out a drill. Afterwards, visit the exhibition Beyond Midnight: Paul Revere for kid-friendly labels, touch objects, and a Paul Revere story corner.

Special gift! Get into the Revolutionary War spirit: Kids get free quill pens all weekend from the NYHistory Store if they say the code words "PAUL REVERE" to a sales associate. (Limit, one pen per child.)
