Festival Commemoration with Declaration of Independence reading

American Independence Museum
1 Governors Ln
Exeter, NH 03833

Join us for this virtual presentation of the annual reading of the Declaration of Independence as part of our re-imagined American Independence Festival sponsored by Newburyport Bank!

This special program is being produced and presented in partnership with Exeter TV and will include a memorial salute, a new festival video, welcoming remarks, and the traditional reading of the Declaration of Independence by John Taylor Gilman portrayed by descendant Greg Gilman.

Making it even more meaningful this year, the recording reading will take place in Town House Common – the original location it was read from when the Dunlap Broadside arrived in Exeter on July 16, 1776!
