ARCCE can arrange for authors and historians within our network to speak to organizations throughout America on a wide range of topics, particularly relating to their research projects and books. Please contact us regarding the topic in which you are interested.
ARCCE is working with other organizations to promote Special Exhibits such "14 Presidents Before Washington", "The Battle of Kings Mountain", and "A History of Rhode Island during the Revolutionary War" in order to showcase historic artifacts such as papers and weapons; historically accurate mannequins dressed in authentic attire; portraits and paintings: and living history portrayals. Future exhibit projects will include working to achieve the permanent placement of state exhibits in the two major American Revolution Museums in Philadelphia and Yorktown, respectively.
ARCCE supports battlefield & historic site preservation and is particularly supportive of the American Battlefield Trust and its efforts throughout the original thirteen states to save Revolutionary War battlefields, historic sites and homes from commercial development. ARCCE has partnered with multiple groups such as the South Carolina Battleground Preservation Trust, the Nathanael Greene Homestead, and Paoli Battlefield Preservation Fund to help protect these sacred treasures while educating the General Public about their importance. Historic homes partnerships include the John Dickinson Plantation (DE); and the Nathanael Greene Homestead (RI). ARCCE is also supportive of historian Patrick O'Donnell's project to identify the sacred ground burial location of the "Maryland 400" who were killed during the Battles of Long Island, NY, in 1776.
ARCCE has extensive contacts and professional relationships with multiple Living History & Historic Interpretation groups throughout the country and is well-positioned to arrange for many of these groups to participate in "bringing history alive" through their interpretations of Colonial Life.
