By looking at the American Revolution from the street-level, through the eyes of the real people who lived it,  we can see the events as they  truly happened; this story of real people and uncertain outcomes. What was this person’s experience and how was it shaped by their beliefs, their occupation, their age, the color of their skin? 


From the Card:

  • Your mother dies when you are young. Your father loses his fortune and is forced to tutor students.
  • You study Greek, Latin, and religion along with your father’s students.
  • You learn quickly, and soon begin tutoring the young men yourself.
  • The American Revolution gives you an opportunity to earn money by making lace, which could no longer be imported due to Patriot boycotts.
  • After the Revolution, you receive literary fame by writing about world religions, making you a celebrity throughout New England.
