The American Philosophical Society, in partnership with the Historical Society of Pennsylvania and Library Company of Philadelphia, proposes Revolutionary City: A Portal to the Nation's Founding - a pilot project that brings together educators, archivists, and digital humanists to design an online portal that will connect collections related to the American Revolution. The proposal is presented in the spirit of the upcoming United States Semiquincentennial in 2026. The portal will serve as a one-stop shop for scholars, teachers, students, and the public to learn about the diverse stories of the American Revolution from the perspective of the residents of America's revolutionary city.
