First State Heritage Park Produces Fine Production About Becoming the First State

One of the outstanding programs we attended on this busy weekend filled with holiday activities, was a performance celebrating the First State’s ratification of the Constitution.  As we approached the old State House in Dover flickering flames illuminated our path, chasing away the darkness and facilitating our travel in time.  Once inside it was easy to believe we’d traveled back 1787, the eve of ratification in Delaware, as wandered around overhearing delegates, protestor, tavern-keepers, and slaves, debate the Constitution and the challenges of the era, as we participated in the activities.

This is the second year we’ve attended this informative historical drama.  The Delaware State Parks are to be congratulated for producing this informative and entertaining piece of historical theater. It is one of the finest types of these productions in the mid-Atlantic.The performers were first class and the content superb, the type of program one would expect to travel to Williamsburg to enjoy and learn from.  A great way to present an engaging history lesson with solid content.
