Oct. 7| “Mini” Mischianza – Member only event

 Join us for a “Mini” Mischianza!

In September of 1777, the British army marched into Philadelphia and occupied the city until June of 1778. In spring of ‘78, the British troops with Major John Andre, threw the biggest party ever seen to honor General William Howe and his brother before they departed for Great Britain. It was called the Mischianza and loyalists from around the city came out to party.

240 years later, the Friends of Independence will take an afternoon off from supporting and promoting the Patriot cause to understand more about the Loyalists and have a bit of fun with them! Come out to meet other supporters of the park, hang out with a British soldier who will teach you the latest songs from the ranks and meet Major John Andre.
Thanks to our sponsor, Keystone Property Group for hosting this event.  Our sponsor will be providing beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages as well as a selection of tasty appetizers for the afternoon.*  Come enjoy the afternoon with fellow supporters of the Friends of Independence and learn about the War for Independence from the British point of view.
