The Trust’s Teachers Institute: Independence Forever!

We’ve had a great couple of days at the American Battlefield Trust’s Teacher Institute. I have notes from some fantastic talks and workshops that I’ve attended, which I’ll get typed up when I have the chance. There’s so much going on, and so many great programs, it’s been hard to sit down and write!

Today, we’ve ventured away from the conference center in Valley Forge to walk in the footsteps of history. That first means we need to hop on some busses, though. Two rumble off to the National Civil War Museum in Harrisburg, led by Garry Adelman and Tim Smith. Another two, with Philll Greenwalt leading one and Dan Davis and me tag-teaming the other, roll off to downtown Philadelphia. 

In Philly, we’ll visit Independence Hall, the Franklin Museum, and the Museum of the American Revolution, with a tasty lunch scheduled at City Tavern.
