Transcript of American Revolution
Due: My Topic: What/Who? What? Why? The topic I chose:
What was going on in the children's lives during the American Revolution? In the information we learned in the novel nothing specific was ever stated about children other than the Revere kids. The children were very much affected by the American Revolution. Sometimes soldiers would take their wives and children on campaigns with them. The children were also responsible for doing small chores around the camps such as, gathering water and delivering messages to others. If a boy had musical talent they could be recruited as a musician to play the drums or the fife for the regiment. This was a paid job however the younger children had to do unskilled work which was paid only in food rations. Some teenage boys around the age of sixteen were drafted by the British or the rebels. Some volunteered younger than that. That meant that is that particular boy had a sister she would have to pick up the slack around the house and take on a bigger workload. Some also helped out by helping take care of the family business. Many teenagers who were not fighting in was served as spies and passed information along to Tory or rebel leaders. The only specific events that were going on was obviously the American Revolution and people losing family members who were fighting or died in the war. When? American Revolution If the girls had a brother or father who left for war they had to take on a larger work load. They had to do this because the jobs had to be done but there was no one else who was able to get the accomplished. If a boy left for war they did this because they needed people to fight in the war to help their team win. This all started happening when the American Revolution began. The dates of the American Revolution was 1775 until the Treaty of Paris was signed in 1783. Where? The American Revolution was made up of many back wars. Therefore, American Revolution took place in many different places. Some of the places the battles occurred were Princeton, Trenton, Brandywine Creek, Yorktown, and Saratoga.

During the war many familes lost the men in the family because they had to go right in the war. Therefore, there was alot of housework and such that had to be completed. This is what caused the girls in the family to have to work. How? Some of the British and rebels in the war were killed making it hard to keep fighting without as many people. Boys at any age could be chosen to go be in the war on either side More Pictures http://dont-tread-on.me/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/img0024.jpg http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSgkLJbD1yvY8AMgBrFfAHzrvV1QGs0sAF9mqy_6Xlapvk3MppuOw:www.britishbattles.com/images/revolution/british-grenadier.jpg
