 Freedom Galleries
The Freedom Gallery is a series of twenty-three (23) beautiful, historic paintings and replicas of founding documents telling the story of America's Freedom.  Roots of Freedom also offers an educational kit for teachers to use in instructing students about the documents and pictures in the Freedom Gallery.
Consisting of three sections, the gallery chronicles the events and painful process of America’s freedom. Section One documents our Founding Fathers’ desire to separate from Great Britain. Section Two takes us through the triumphant days of the American Revolutionary War.  Finally, Section Three explores the process of becoming a free people through multiple failures and ultimate successes.
