BOOK LIST (to print) -- AMERICAN REVOLUTION
You’ve spent the last few months learning about life in the colonies and the eventual struggle towards independence. This month’s American History topic focuses on stories of the American Revolution and the hard fought-for victory in which the French played a vital role. So the study of France weaves in well. Also, the story of Lafayette brings up the discussion of why the American and French Revolutions played out so differently.
- The Watchfires of ‘76 by Samuel Drake–Here are firsthand accounts of fighting in the Revolution.
Art credit: Washington Rallying the Troops at Monmouth by Emanuel Leutze
