The American Revolution: More to the Story Than You Learned in School
The American Revolution is full of fascinating events and personalities such as the Declaration of Independence and George Washington crossing the Delaware. Often, we have just a superficial knowledge of these events and people but when presented with more detail, they become even more intriguing and better understood. This presentation will examine multiple topics and personalities such as the Boston Massacre, Paul Revere's ride, Benedict Arnold and the Battle of Valcour Island, providing the story behind the story, placing them in context, and correcting misconceptions, which will enhance and perhaps even change one's understanding of what occurred.
