LONDONDERRY —When the founders signed the U.S. Declaration of Independence, they looked forward to a new era of freedom. But they were also looking to the past: specifically, to ancient Greece and Rome, from which they drew inspiration for the new nation.
The strong connection between the U.S. Founding Fathers and the classical civilization will be highlighted on Sat., July 4, when the Aviation Museum of N.H. takes online visitors on a virtual flight over Italy, including Rome's many surviving ancient sites such as the Colosseum and the Parthenon.
The live stream event, which will run from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time, is part of the Aviation Museum's 'Around the World Flight Adventure' online learning program. Generated on a flight simulator and available free online, the program is taking students and teachers on an ongoing global journey.
