Independence National Historical Park Mounts Display for National Archaeology Day
October 17, 2012 | by Jed Levin
Independence National Historical Park mounted an archaeological artifact display (July-Nov) in the First Bank of the United States to coincide with National Archaeology Day. The display features two ceramic pitchers bearing War of 1812 battle scenes. The items are historical commemoration pieces and their display today is a commemoration for the War of 1812, which occurred 200 years ago.
