Living History Days at N-YHS
Living History @ Home: Quansheba’s World
Join us online! | Wednesday, August 26 | 10 - 11 am


Free; all ages 

Who was Quansheba? Join New-York Historical’s Living History coordinator and an expert from the Museum of the American Revolution (MoAR) as we explore the world of Quansheba, a free woman of color who helped run a tavern in Philadelphia during the Revolutionary War. Learn about her life and the lives of other Black women by exploring a recreated tavern, investigating the archaeological collection at MoAR, and looking closely at artifacts that Quansheba may have actually used. As an added bonus: Get a special behind-the-scenes look (virtually!) at the Museum of the American Revolution
