Are you serious enough about the Revolution to commit HIGH TREASON?

July 4th: 1:00 pm
Fort Mifflin
A Public Reading of the Declaration of Independence

On Sunday, July 4th at 1:00pm, I plan to read aloud the Declaration of Independence with special emphasis on the abuses and usurpations imposed on the American Colonies by George III and Parliament.

Following this reading, in remembrance of Col. Nixon’s reading on 7/8/1776, I will ask the crowd to scour the fort for images and honors to the King. They will be directed to rip these down from their places of honor as our Philadelphia Associators did following Col Nixon’s reading and to drag them through mud and mire to the parade ground where we will commit HIGH TREASON against the King and Parliament by publicly burning these symbols.

That’s right folks. Fireworks and celebrations are all good but to be a real revolutionary, you must PARTICPATE in the Revolution. Come to Fort Mifflin and be a part in our public display of our formal separation from the Crown.

My goal is to bring history alive through interactive portrayal of ordinary American life in the late 18th Century (1750—1799) My persona are: Journeyman Brewer; Cordwainer (leather tradesman but not cobbler), Statesman and Orator; Chandler (candle and soap maker); Gentleman Scientist; and, Soldier in either the British Regular Army, the Centennial Army, or one of the various Militia. Let me help you experience history 1st hand!
