GUESS WHO IS IN CENTER STAGE

AT THE M*A*R PHILADELPHIA?

OUR FAVORITE FRENCH GENERAL
Rochambeau points to the Battlefield at Yorktown, Virginia. He stands at the War Tent with Washington and Lafayette October 1781

Jini Jones Vail with the Henri Le Grand copy of the Siege of Yorktown at the newly-opened Museum of the American Revolution (M*AR) in Philadelphia. The painting was restored and framed by the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution and then presented to the M*AR for our enjoyment.

The above image represents my first visit to the M*AR in Philadelphia with my son, Rusty Dyer. This scene is in the atrium of the M*AR looking up to the central painting at the top of the stairs.

Rochambeau and Washington lovers: Hear ye! Hear ye!

 

Great news for all of us who love our American history.
The new Museum of the American Revolution (M*AR) opened its doors in April 2017

My son, Rusty Dyer, and I joined a DARR/CAR trip to Philadelphia, PA to pay it a visit October 14-15, 2017.

Here we are outside the entrance with the cannon (no ’s) and the Redcoats!!!

 

They look friendly enough. In fact, they were downright affable!

It was Rusty’s birthday on the 15th, and he was born not far from this spot at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP). What a great way to CELEBRATE!

FLASH Tune in next month for more on our trip ~
