Washington's Tent

Washington's Tent Reconstruction Cam

For much of the Revolutionary War, George Washington's home was a large oval-shaped tent, the first "oval office" of the Commander-in-Chief of an American Army. Historic Trades tailors reproduced the tent as part of a partnership between Colonial Williamsburg and the Museum of the American Revolution. Now that it is complete, the reproduction tent will be used for a variety of educational and outreach programs, in advance of the opening of the Museum of the American Revolution in 2016.
