Arthur Middleton and the Declaration of Independence Exhibit – House Museum (Runs from July 1st until September 27th)

In 1776, the Declaration of Independence announced the entry of the United States onto the world stage. Since then, the document has not only become a model for other countries to emulate, but it has become – in the words of Abraham Lincoln – “the seminal statement of the American Promise.”

This exhibit will not only focus on some of the facets of the Declaration of Independence, but it will take a closer look at the public and private life of Arthur Middleton, one of the document’s fifty-six signers.
