Read More About The American Revolution!

During our February reading lessons we learned so much about the American Revolution. On a Scholastic website I was able to watch a video of the popular “I Survived Series” author, Lauren Tarshish talk with historians about some key people who were in the war, but also some more ordinary people who also helped in the battles.  You will also see weapons that were used, as well as other items that were helpful during that time period.
