We just won the war!!! America is finally free from the chains of British rule!! Can't wait to form a new government and take this country to heights it never imagined!
I worked on my family plantation and soon mastered growing tobacco, stock raising, and surveying. I was later appointed in the Virginia militia and became the leader of the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. I later became the first president of the United States of America.

Battle of Yorktown
Lives In
I was born and raised in the colony of Virginia until I became the Commander in Chief of the Continental Army.
George Washington
We have a plan on how to win. We will lure the British to the North and attack Cornwallis from the South. I hope we win because this is what we've all been waiting for.

We've suffered a lot of casualties the past few battles. Morale is quite low, but being the leader, I say we can still do it! If we want something bad enough, we must keep trying!

We're slowly running out of supplies. Everything from ammunition to gunpowder to soldiers is scarce. It's all up to God to help us.

Surprise attack at Trenton, New Jersey! Take that British!

They just took New York. But it's OK. We must protect the land we still have.

The first battle of the Revolutionary war was a Patriot success! We just showed the British that we aren't as inferior as they might think.

I'm honored to be the leader of the Continental Army. I will do my best to lead you all to victory because America deserves independence!
Status Update
The Declaration of Independence has been sent to King George. I hope he will agree to peacefully give us independence, but if he doesn't, we are ready and determined to fight and earn it ourselves!

The Treaty of Paris has just been signed. Welcome to newly independent United States of America!
By age 16, I was contributing essays to my brother's newspaper and when I turned 17, I ran away to Philadelphia and became a printer. I completed many humanitarian acts after my printing business took off; I helped build libraries, fire stations, and militias. I also helped open a college that is now known as the University of Pennsylvania. I am also known for my penchant for science and my discovery of electricity.

Battle of Yorktown
Lives In
I was born in colonial Boston on January 17, 1706. My father was a candle and soap maker and I have 16 siblings. Although I didn't garner much of an education, I was a fervent reader and I taught myself how to write well.
Benjamin Franklin
There is no better day than today for the American colonists! All their hard work and determination has paid off and we have finally secured independence from the British. Hooray!

We've suffered a lot of casualties the past few battles. Morale is quite low. But we must gather all our strength and fight our way to victory. We've come so far, it's not the time to give up.

I'm back in America and I'm honored to be part of the Second Continental Congress. We just finished helping Thomas Jefferson draft the Declaration of Independence. Hope it all works out and we don't have to take this any further.

I have been living in London since 1757 as a representative for the Pennsylvania Assembly, and I noticed that the British are imposing many regulatory measures on the colonists. This can't be good.
Status Update
I just proposed a plan for uniting the colonies under a national Congress, but of course it was rejected. I hope the others will come through and support my Albany Plan soon. We need to get the King and his troops off our back.
I just testified against the Stamp Act in front of the British Parliament, and I think we can expect favorable results. Soon, there will be no additional taxes on printed material!
I'm currently in France, trying to enlist their help in the Revolutionary War. I was hoping it wouldn't come this far, but a nation's got to do what it's got to do. I'm praying to my dear God that France is willing to form and alliance because I don't think we can defeat the British by ourselves.
Lafayette, the most loyal and committed French soldier, deserves the loudest applause. We own him so much, and whether we win or not, we've come this far thanks to his genius and commitment.

I'm sad to say that the British indeed lost the American Revolutionary War, and we better watch out because I can already tell that the United States of America is going to be world power, unlike any nation before it.
I was very eager to start my military career, so I traveled to Italy to receive my training. I was also appointed in Parliament, and I became a member of the House of Commons in 1760. The first war I fought in was the Seven Years' War (the French and Indian War). I also became increasingly active in British politic and I got promoted to a position in the House of Lords.

Battle of Yorktown
Lives In
Charles Cornwallis
They caught me at the wrong time. Our troops were depleted, and there was no way to ask and receive help from the others. I had no choice but to surrender. We even tried to flee across the York River, but they gave us no chance. If I had any other option, I wouldn't have done this, but it seems as though the Americans have finally become independent.

General Clinton has made me the head of the British campaign in the South, but he left me with limited troops. Despite this, I have garnered British loyalists and I have convinced the African American slaves to support our cause. With His blessing, may we be victorious!

We've had a couple of victories at Brandywine, Germantown, and Fort Mercer. And I think General Clinton has forgiven me because I got promoted to second in command!

I was going to finally take my leave, but after the surprise attack at Trenton, there is no way I can abandon my fellow troops.

The loss at Princeton clearly upset General Clinton. He blames me for retreating, but I had no choice! I hope we get over this and I can prove myslef to him once again.

I'm honored to represent the British in this war against America. Today, I will begin my training under Major General Henry Clinton.
I was born in London on New Year's Eve, 1738. I lived in this city for a while until I decided to take up a military career.
The war has begun and we were forced to retreat during the first battle at Concord. These colonists are no joke. They are very determined to win, but they are forgetting who they're messing with.
I returned home to care for my sick wife, Jemina, who is now dead. But now is not the time to grieve. I will help our country win this war with my wife's blessings from Heaven.

My parents and my grandparents died when I was really young, so I inherited most of the wealth in my family. At age fourteen, I joined the Royal Army and at the age of sixteen, I got married to a relative of the British king, increasing my social status.

Marquis de Lafayette
The American and the French troops have worked together to corner Cornwallis in Yorktown. His only option now is to surrender to Washington and bask in the colonists' glory.

I just found out that Thomas Conway is eager to convince Congress to relieve my dear friend George Washington from his leadership of the Continental Army. I just warned Washington of Conway's machination, but he forced me to continue preparations for the attack in Canada. I have no choice but to obey him.

Benjamin Franklin, the American ambassador, just secured an alliance with France. I cannot wait to go to the colonies and give them my best. Maybe I can convince a few of my fellow soldiers to come with me...
I was born on September 6, 1757 in Chavaniac, Auvergne, a French province. This is where I lived for most of my life.
The Continental Congress just commissioned me as a major leader in the American Revolutionary War. I'm so happy and honored to be aiding the colonists in their fight for freedom. I greatly appreciate the fact that the Congress trusts me to help lead them to victory.
I am glad to say that I have fought in my first battle with the Americans, but unfortunately, the British weren't too happy about that, since now I'm wounded. This injury might take a few months to heal, but I know that the Continental Army will do fine under the leadership of my good friend George Washington.
The British decided to throw a surprise attack at me on Barren Hill, but they don't know how I fight. I quickly threw together a strategy, and forced them to retreat. I hope they know to not mess with me again.
It's 1778 and I'm thrilled to be back home with my wife and kids at the Palace of Versialles. But that doesn't mean that I won't do everything I can to help the Americans from here. I'm currently trying by best to secure more aide from the French King.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to attend the Constitutional Convention due to my new duties as Ambassador for France.
I graduated the College of William and Mary and went on to study law under a Virginia attorney. I started working as a lawyer in 1767 and as a result, became a member of the Virginia House of Burgesses. I also received much of my father's land after his death, and I had a penchant for architecture and gardening so I remodeled and renovated it throughout my lifetime.

The battle at Yorktown wraps up this long war for American independence. The clauses in the Declaration of Independence that I wrote so long ago are finally going to come true, and I couldn't be happier.

I can feel that the war is about to reach an end. There isn't much time left. I just hope it's to our favor.

A much needed victory at Trenton immensely helped bring the patriotism and determination back in our troops it seems.

I'm doing whatever I can to help Washington and his troops, but there isn't much I can do because I'm occupied with my duties as the governor of Virginia. I just hope they know what they're doing .

I'm watching the war from the sidelines. So far, with the first battle at Concord, it seems like the colonists got what it takes to beat the British.

It's looking worse and worse for the colonists. From what I've seen and heard, resources are depleted and more and more people are dying every day. I can only pray and plead God for help.

I just resigned from the Continental Congress because I was reelected into the Virginia House of Delegates.

Just finished revising the Declaration of Independence. We're going to send it to the king tomorrow. I hope this yields positive results!
I was born on April 13, 1743 in Charlottesville, Virginia, somewhere out in the wilderness. Much of my childhood was spent on the family plantation in this city.
