I got my inspiration from a subtitle in my book
How it relates to the Book
In the book Samuel, from
, has to deal with many Hessians through out his journey
Where did they come from
They were trained in Hesse-Kassel
It was part of the Roman empire
How many lived after the war
There were approximately 12,000 that came home
That means that 18,000 died over in America
Battle at Long Island
Took place on August 27, 1776
George Washington lost 970 troops
After the Americans lost George Washington kept himself cool and calm and plotted revenge
Why did the Hessians agree to help the british
They signed up because they wanted money and they loved to battle
Flipping through pages and found the subtitle that said "Hessians".
