Mission US | THIRTEEN | The American Revolution | Scoop.it

Two interactive American Revolution games. The story line is a little slow to play with an entire class, but is good for a 1-1 student to computer class.

From this website I was able to identify several reasons for the start of the American Revolution for example one reason was that the colonists had to quarter the british troops. However the Boston tea party was the start of the british Revolution the boston tea party was formed by a man named Samuel Adams. There were about 60 members that got together the night of December 16 1773 and dumped $18,000 worth of tea over board because, they wouldn't send the tea back to England. The 60 members of the Bostaon Tea party all dressed up as Mohawk indians to show that they are no longer british they are now Americans.

In the battle of Saratoga the americans use the terrain to hide and take out the british with out them seeing or knowing were to shot. In this battle the americans also broke the rules of warfare by first taking out the higher ranks and working there way down. The reason why this is so significant is because the british foot soldiers were nearly clueless with out a commander. This win by the Americans also helped to convince the French to join the war which meant that the war would be on land and sea.
