About Our Project: Considering Re-enactments: The Battle of Germantown in the Light of 21st-Century Gun Violence

With societal shifts over the past 40 years and a recent increase of violence in Philadelphia, Cliveden is compelled to confront the reality of gun violence in everyday American life. As a three-phase project, Cliveden hopes to discover the impact the site’s current interpretation of Revolutionary era history has on our community and how this history resonates with your lived experience. Topics for discussion include the effects of the loud sensory components of the re-enactment, the storytelling focus of the event and the celebration vs. commemoration of recreating violent historic events.

Considering Re-enactments: The Battle of Germantown in the Light of 21st– Century Gun Violence has been supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.
