The National Museum of the American Revolution & The Swan Historical Foundation 

“The Swan Historical Foundation, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to encouraging and inspiring continuing knowledge and appreciation of the American Revolution for the benefit of present and future generations. The Foundation is the founder and developer of the National Museum of the American Revolution.”

The Swan Historical Foundation is named for an early United States Congressman, Dr. Samuel Swan, of Somerville, New Jersey, who wrote the bill authorizing a pension for the widows and orphans of those first American soldiers. That legislation led, eventually, to the creation of the Veterans Administration. Also, the Foundation oversees the world’s largest known private collection of American Revolutionary War artifacts. It is fitting that the National Museum of the American Revolution, located at the Visitors Center/Museum, Washington Crossing State Park, Titusville, NJ, is home to the stunning invaluable collection of his great, great grandson, New Jersey historian H. Kels Swan, who is president and founder of the Swan Historical Foundation.  We lend our full support to this film project.

 

The David Library of the American Revolution

We are a specialized research library dedicated to the study of American history circa 1750 to 1800.  The David Library is a non-profit educational institution.  Our mission is the collection and dissemination of information on this early period of American history, and the support of related educational programs and scholarly research.   We are proud to partner with this historical documentary on Washington's Crossing.
