American History Alive! The 20th Century


Step back in time each week for a one-of-a-kind rendez-vous with key personalities in American history. Fourth quarter appearances will focus on the early twentieth century. Meet great Americans such as Henry Ford, Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, General Pershing (WWI), Amelia Earhart, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Rosie the Riveter, and Martin Luther King Jr.

Each week a professional, costumed living history interpreter will deliver a compelling first-person performance portraying his or her role in American history. Living history actors are the professionals employed by museums, historical sites, and conferences. They have typically studied their historical character for years and tell their story in first person. Presentations are conversational in style, occasionally involve the audience, and conclude with spontaneous audience Q & A. Watch the historical actors answer 21st century questions in character with period replies! Students younger than third grade (or age 8) must be accompanied by a paid parent or adult. Parents and siblings interested in the program must register and pay separately.

Topics in this series include: The 1700s (Quarter 1); The 1800s (Quarter 2); The Civil War (Quarter 3); and the 20th Century (Quarter 4).
