We're all about the Revolutionary War and the Declaration of Independence - and America's Founding Fathers. See the Founding Fathers in a life-size diorama of John Trumbull's famous painting "Declaration of Independence". Watch 1776 come alive with the story of the risks involved in signing the Declaration and declare independence from Great Britain, and shoot a period-correct flintlock.
The exhibit features the story of the 56 men who risked all they held dear by signing the Declaration of Independence. The centerpiece of America's Founding Fathers is John Trumbull's painting "Declaration of Independence" presented as life-size statues. You're introduced to June 28, 1776, by first-person interpreters who tell the story of why and how we came to the point of declaring independence, the struggle and the Revolutionary War.
We are featuring local Patriotic organizations and attractions from the Black Hills area. You will learn about the historical importance of these local businesses and attractions.
