JMM to participate in Blue Star Museums

We are pleased to be once again participating in the Blue Star Museums program, offering free admission to active duty military personnel and their families between Memorial Day and Labor Day 2013!

“Like others of his generation, James Monroe not only served his country, he helped create it,” said Scott Harris, director of the James Monroe Museum. “He fought with courage and distinction in the Revolutionary War and suffered a near-fatal wound at the Battle of Trenton. For the rest of his life he had nothing but praise and respect for veterans. It is therefore especially appropriate for the museum that bears his name to be one of the Blue Star Museums.”
