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:

  • You work for a lumber merchant and rent a room in his house.
  • When your employer tells you that tea is being destroyed in Boston Harbor, you hurry to join.
  • Some participants dress as Mohawk Indians, but you have no disguise. You notice that those in costumes are “men of family and position in Boston.”
  • During the Revolutionary War, you become a Lieutenant in the Continental Army.
  • You later move to another town where you become a local celebrity for your participation in the famous protest.
