WILLIAMSBURG, Va., July 1, 2016 – On the eve of Independence Day, a new online personality quiz invites participants to discover what they have in common with people of the American Revolution. “How Revolutionary Are You?,” an amusing take on history, launches today on the Facebook page and website – jyfmuseums.org – of Jamestown Settlement and the Yorktown Victory Center, transitioning in October to American Revolution Museum at Yorktown.
Featuring 20 individuals who lived during the Revolution, the quiz provides a window into the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown, where an introductory film and permanent exhibition galleries will debut on October 15. A living-history Revolution-era farm and Continental Army encampment under construction will be completed in early 2017. Through period artifacts and immersive environments, dioramas, short films and interactive exhibits, the expansive new galleries – along with the introductory film and the new living-history areas – will link the story of the Revolution to the lives of 21st-century Americans.
In “How Revolutionary Are You?” players select one of four possible responses to each of 10 questions and are then “matched” with one of the 20 subjects – reflecting the diversity of the people caught up in the Revolution – whose image and profile appear on the screen. The quiz can be replayed an unlimited number of times.
Jamestown Settlement and the Yorktown Victory Center, year-round living-history museums operated by the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation, a Virginia state agency, tell the story of the nation’s beginnings, from the arrival of America’s first permanent English colonists in 1607 to the formation of the United States government in the late 1700s. The “How Revolutionary Are You?” personality quiz recognizes the philanthropic support of The Revolutionaries, a donor club of the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation, Inc.
