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.

The gift store carries books about the Revolutionary War period, educational material and much more. We also have a Kentucky flintlock long rifle you can fire at the gun range.
