The Movie Musical 1776

A while back I was writing about visiting Philadelphia with kids.

If you’re planning to visit Independence Hall in Philadelphia, I would recommend watching the musical 1776 (filmed in 1972) before your trip. It really brings Independence Hall to life.

It helps you and your kids understand what took place in that one room, called the Assembly Room, in the days leading up to the Declaration of Independence.

Plus, it’s a lot of fun!

    That is a capital idea. …. I very much enjoy the music from that play and had seen it on Broadway and other productions. I believe that much of the play is historically accurate.
