EAST MARLBOROUGH — Philadelphia’s Museum of the American Revolution will be filming at the Plantation Field in Unionville Friday and Saturday.
The organization is creating a virtual tour of its “First Oval Office Project” – a project in which they created an incredibly authentic recreation of George Washington’s War Tent, the tent that served as his headquarters during the Revolutionary War. The original is on display at the museum.
Crews will be setting up this replica tent and others (a dining tent, baggage tent and some common soldiers’ tents) on a private farm near Plantation Field in Chester County during the afternoon on Friday and filming it. On Saturday beginning at 8 a.m., filming will continue, but there will be folks in costume.
The virtual tour will launch in spring 2021.
Scott Stephenson, the museum's president and CEO, will be on site as will Tyler Putman, Manager of Gallery Interpretation.
