George Washington’s Headquarters Tent
Suggested Ages: All, Adult Friendly
Explore the “first Oval Office,” the tent where George Washington and his most trusted staff plotted the strategy that ultimately won the Revolutionary War. On loan from the Museum of the American Revolution (MoAR), the painstakingly detailed, hand-sewn replica was created in a collaboration between MoAR and Colonial Williamsburg. The Tent is staffed by MoAR educators, who lead visitors on an immersive tour through history, and will be on view to the public most weekends.
