Admission:  Adults $12, Seniors $10, Kids $8

In honor of the Father of American Cavalry, join us and the First Troop Philadelphia City Cavalry as we celebrate and discuss cavalry in the American Revolution. The First Troop Philadelphia City Cavalry is the oldest active military unit in the United States. Formed in 1774 to defend the colonial capital of Philadelphia, this unit escorted Washington to Boston as his personal bodyguard and continued to play that role throughout the early stages of the war. They have had the distinguished honor of escorting U.S. Presidents whenever they are in Philadelphia and remain an active military unit of the Pennsylvania National Guard. This program will feature members of that distinguished unit’s color guard, dismounted, as well as a talk given by a historian of the unit who will be discussing the unit’s important role in the American Revolution and other conflicts throughout our nation’s history. Come meet and learn from active members of the unit and gain an appreciation for cavalrymen during the American Revolution.
