Evaluation of the Becoming Americans Theme and Choosing Revolution Story: Responses to Visitor Interviews

November 1st, 1996 | EVALUATION

This report presents findings from a formative evaluation of the Becoming American theme and the Choosing Revolution story. Becoming Americans tells how diverse peoples, holding different and sometimes conflicting personal ambitions, evolved into a society that valued both liberty and equality. Becoming Americans is the umbrella theme for several stories, one of which is Choosing Revolution. The Choosing Revolution story is about the changing community and the decisions people living in the colony made to shape their future. Choosing Revolution was presented at eight key sites and many secondary sites in the Historic Area at Colonial Williamsburg in the summer of 1996. This is the first year of a major reinterpretation project that will continue over the next four years.
