Education: From Crown to Country

In this historic setting, students will use artifacts and hands-on activities to learn how the events leading up to the American Revolution shaped the difficult decisions faced by New Jersey colonists.  Guided by museum educators dressed in historic clothing, students will use a quill pen to sign a loyalty oath to support the patriot cause, remain loyal to King George III, or stay out of the conflict with the Quakers. From Crown to Country is additionally available as a virtual field-trip or as an outreach program!
