July 4th Celebration

Inside FEHA

Friday, July 3rd and Saturday, July 4th

Join us at Federal Hall National Memorial for a lively program. Bring your cameras and
questions as visitors can interact with General George Washington.

This will be the closest you can get to meet our American hero without owning a time machine.
Historic re-enactors will bring to life the epic American Revolution and the reading of the
Declaration of Independence.

This event is being conducted in conjunction with the visit of the
L’Hermione, a reconstruction of the warship which brought the Marquis de Lafayette to America in 1780.

Unless otherwise noted, activities take place within the Zenger Gallery.
