Washington's wartime 'oval office' getting remade

In this March 2013 photo provided by the Museum of the American Revolution, Michelle Presnall examines the tent George Washington used as his residence and command center during the Revolutionary War, near Philadelphia. The tent is being duplicated down to the finest stitch and will serve as an education tool and goodwill ambassador for a new museum coming to the city’s historic district. The 22-feet-long, 15-feet-wide oval tent, also called a marquee, is being reproduced this summer as part of a new partnership between the planned Museum of the American Revolution and Colonial Williamsburg.
