Washington Crossing the Delaware, A Reenactment


In NYC’s Metropolitan Museum of Art hangs the famous 1851 painting, Washington Crossing the Delaware. In 1951, 100 years after the painting’s creation and 50 blocks south, a group of boys from Madison's 29th Street Clubhouse celebrated our founding fathers by re-enacting this historic piece of art. How’d they do it? By filling the rooftop of the Clubhouse with water and rowing across. This is definitely a #PresidentsDay celebration for the history books!
