Flag Buffs Will Delight At Fraunces Tavern Museum’s Two New Exhibitions

History nerds, mark your calendars: On Friday, April 2, Fraunces Tavern Museum debuts two new exhibitions, each a study of flags and popular emblems from the Revolutionary Era. 

”An American Emblem of Magnaminty” highlights the Gadsden Flag, examining how the interpretation of its signature timber rattlesnake and slogan “Don’t Tread on Me” has changed from then to today. Perhaps more firmly wedded to a bygone era, ”To The Beat of Their Own Drums: American Regimental Flags of the American Revolution,” features a selection of flags which were flown by different regiments of the Continental Army, and delves into the meaning behind their iconography. 

You can expect all the standard social-distancing protocols: Guests are required to wear masks and have their temperatures checked upon entry, and timed ticketing is in effect to limit occupancy. 

Reserve tickets and plan your visit here.
