As part of Cliveden of the National Trust’s Considering Re-enactments: The Battle of Germantown in the Light of 21st-Century Gun Violence, Noah Lewis shares his experience as a first-person interpreter of African American teamster and Revolutionary War veteran, Edward 'Ned' Hector.

This event will be held outside on the grounds of Cliveden. All attendees must wear masks and maintain social distancing while participating in the conversation.

Considering Re-enactments is a project designed to engage the Germantown community in a dialogue around Cliveden’s signature event, the Revolutionary Germantown Festival, in light of modern-day gun violence. The goal is to inform future interpretations and reenactments of the Battle of Germantown that more deeply resonate with the community.

This event is free but capacity is limited and registration is required.
