The Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia will host Veterans Day programming Nov. 9-11. Here, workmen hang a Federal Era flag as part of a summer 2019 historic flag exhibit.

Philadelphia, a city steeped in American history, plays host to a number of sites honoring those who have served.

The city’s Museum of the American Revolution will mark Veterans Day by offering free admission Nov. 9-11 to active and retired military personnel and Blue Star families.

The museum also will host special programs, walking tours and activities related to early American soldiers and their families.

The 30-minute walking tours Nov. 9-10 will take participants to Washington Square Park, site of the Tomb of the Unknown Revolutionary War Soldier, to explore the history of Revolutionary War veterans.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
