AR-SP11 Independence Day Live

July 4, 2021

I discuss the events leading up to independence, how the colonies made that dangerous leap to fight for independence.

I also speak with Jason Mandresh of "Founder of the Day" founderoftheday.com or  https://www.youtube.com/founderoftheday  and Lee Wright from History Camp historycamp.org or thehistorylist.com.

Also mentioned, interesting Revolutionary War-themed tours

  • Culper Tri-Spy Tours http://www.culper.com
  • Kyle Jenks - Join Kyle and Dana as James and Dolley Madison for this leisurely stroll around their Society Hill neighborhood. The couple will share their experiences during the 1790’s when the country was still finding its footing while simultaneously expressing a lively social scene.
    The tour will pass by homes of prominent Philadelphians who were known to the Madisons as well as their own Spruce Street home. (Not open to the public.)
    Tour length: Approximately 120 minutes.
    We will gather at City Tavern at the corner of 2nd and Walnut Street, stroll the neighborhood and circle back to end at City Tavern.
