"An Agreeable Tyrant: Fashion After the Revolution"
October 7, 2016 – April 29, 2017
The exhibition displays men’s and women’s clothing from 1780 to 1825 in a dozen period rooms throughout the museum. It considers how Americans fashioned a new identity through costume; on the one hand, Americans sought to be free from Europe, yet they still relied heavily on European manufacturing and materials.
Private events presented at Constitution Hall, such as graduation ceremonies, dinners, receptions, press conferences, etc., are not listed on this schedule. For information about private events, please contact the organizer directly.
