History after Hours: Power of the Press

May 15, 2018 - 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Museum of the American Revolution

$10 for general admission | free for members

Think “fake news” is a new phenomenon? Learn how propaganda was used by both sides to shape opinion during the Revolutionary War, and explore the stories behind Revolutionary-era printing and political expression during a Power of the Press-themed evening. Learn how printed sheets become pamphlets and books with a hands-on display of books and tools, and make your own political pamphlet with book historian Ben Bartgis.

The event is part of the Museum’ monthly History After Hours series, which features extended evening hours, special themed programs, happy hour food and drink specials in Cross Keys Café from 5 – 7 p.m., and full access to the Museum’s exhibits.
