Within the ethnic makeup of America today many people, old and young, do not understand or perhaps even care about our founding principles. “Our” major goal is to nurture greater appreciation for the principles of democracy and the concept of “liberty and freedom” and how they were achieved during our fight for independence 225 years ago. We are confident that these concepts will prove extremely significant in maintaining our nation’s strength, identity and cohesiveness! So the battle continues !
Our history specialists have been heavily involved in research, planning, and the implementation of educational curriculum for K-12, as well as college students, with emphasis on America’s History. Diverse experiences over the last 25 or so years, in different venues of educational service from grant writing to digital multi- media formatting have provided insight into many methods for funding and designing successful outreach programs. Our educational experiences include both the classroom and a variety of random settings and audiences that require on-the-spot programming flexibility. Whether living history character performances, classroom lecture, curriculum design, or designing and facilitating interactive Historical Educational Exhibits of Revolutionary War artifacts, we “tailor” all programs to fit your particular needs and to be comfortable with each audience and situation: old, young, rich, poor, male or female, ethnic background, professional or layman and in most any setting. We are extremely “goal” oriented and patient for ideas to mature into reality!
We have developed an extensive network of history professional colleagues, all with a basic common goal and each with their own expertise: historical documentary video, museum curators, history professors, Chautauqua performers, re-enactors, etc. Their common goal essentially is to interpret and promote understanding and hopefully provide insight into the American Revolutionary War period. Often demonstrating or reenacting people, places, construction methods, skills, crafts and/or events are used to approach this task. Many new, innovative, and technical methods to teach or share enthusiasm of this common interest have been developed. This includes accurate documentary video as well as the creation of materials using computer technology such as web-based systems and interactive web-site activities. Innovative ideas are being formatted and transposed into hi-tech multi-media programs and presented along with modern printed materials and presentations, utilizing both live and recorded media in collaboration, bringing the past to the present!
