Parades and Power: Street Theatre in Nineteenth-Century Philadelphia

by

Beginning with a vivid description of Philadelphia's spectacular Washington Centennial of 1832, Susan Davis examines the background of street theatre and the history of parades and public ceremonial culture in Europe and the New World. In pre-Civil War Philadelphia, processions and public ceremonies were popular vehicles for historical commemoration and celebration, and for propaganda and protest.
