This tour was recently developed by one of the Constitution Center’s new Museum Educators. From the American Revolution, through the ratification of the 19th amendment, our docent will discuss important female figures and issues, including women in wartime, suffragists and the Abolitionist movement.
Following the tour, we will be treated to the theatrical performance, FOURTEEN, a moving performance that sheds light on the Reconstruction Era and the ratification of the 14th Amendment. Through dramatic interpretation of original texts, the 35-minute performance brings to life the leaders, influential figures, and everyday Americans who were central to the era.
This tour has not yet open to the general public and is being offered exclusively to TTN members. 
 The 19th Amendment exhibit will build upon the National Constitution Center’s newest permanent exhibit, Civil War and Reconstruction: The Battle for Freedom and Equality, and will explore how the women’s rights movement grew alongside the anti-slavery movement and ultimately gained momentum during Reconstruction as part of the ongoing battle for freedom and equality for all.
Following the tour and performance, you are welcome to continue a self-guided exploration of the many other exhibits available throughout the museum.
Cancellations must be made by February 24, 2020 and no refunds will be given after this date.
