Museum of the American Revolution tour; then, N. Korea

Listen 00:49:30

Guests: Phillip Mead, Scott Stephenson, Jenny Town

George Washington’s executive tent, a piece of the bridge from the battle at Concord, photos of people who lived 200 years ago– these are some of the highlights of The Museum of The American Revolution which opens  its doors to the general public today. Marty was given a private tour of the museum by the Vice President of Collections, Exhibitions and Programming, SCOTT STEPHENSON, and by Chief Historian, PHILLIP MEAD.  They guided her through the facility and explained their process of bringing the Revolution back to life, as well as their hopes that visitors will consider the importance of the ideas that sparked American independence.  Then, we’ll get an update on the escalating rhetoric and actions between the United States and North Korea from JENNY TOWN, assistant director of the US-Korea Institute at the John Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies.
