Recovered Memories: Spain and the Support for the American Revolution

Recovered Memories: Spain and the Support for the American Revolution

The Former Residence of the Ambassadors of Spain hosts this engaging and carefully documented survey of Spain’s contribution to the founding of the United States.

Recovered Memories: Spain and the Support for the American Revolution showcases Spain’s support for the American colonies prior to and during the Revolutionary War, and also highlights notable Spanish figures whose lives impacted the emerging new country. The exhibit takes the visitor on a chronological journey of Spanish-American relations beginning with Spain’s own Age of Enlightenment during the reign of Charles III, through the times of European and American revolutions, and ending with the technological advancements at the turn of the 20th century.

Organized by Iberdrola and SPAIN arts & culture, the exhibition features historical documents and works of art. Also on display are clothing of the period, musical instruments, maps of colonial America, and many other historical pieces.
