REVOLUTION! SPECIAL EVENTS WEEKEND

To mark the anniversary of the American Declaration of Independence, the National Army Museum is exploring the American Revolution 1775-1783 from the British perspective and exploding many misconceptions. Presentations by experts will show that the British Army was tactically superior as it won nearly three quarters of the 26 major battles and sieges fought. Only following the intervention of the French and Spanish colonial superpowers did the American nation win the war. The programme also includes a tabletop battle re-enactment and uniformed Redcoat interpreters. Free admission.
