Self Worth- Benedict Arnold had self worth and he thought he would be good enough to be a British officer, if he became a spy.

Value- Molly Pitcher felt valued by the army, when she helped fire the cannons, and save the soldiers from dehydration.

Pride-
James Forten had pride in his work, and he was the one of the only black businessmen in the colonies. Civic Duty- Molly Pitcher felt a Civic Duty to take over her husbands’ cannon after he collapsed, and she helped fire the cannon for the rest of the battle in 1781 James Forten set sail on
The Privateer. James Forten and all of his
shipmates were capturedby a british ship.
they were all held as Prisoner of war on the
Jersey John Forten is included in this because he was influential in the role for African Americans, and he protested a racist bill. He wrote an anonymous pamphlet that was called Letters From A Man of Colour, and he fought racism until he died at age 75. Benedict Arnold was included because he had a impact on the War. He was a British spy, and he informed the British about plans for West Point.
•Husband joined army in 1775
•Carried water to thirsty men James wa The Battle of Germantown is included because it is an important battle in the Revolutionary War. The British won, but the Patriots helped influence the French Court, in becoming allies, and they were impressed that the Patriots could attack like they did, instead of focusing on their number of victories. James was imprisoned for 7 months wothout
being sold as a slave, because a captaian of
a british ship was impressed with the
teenager Revolutionary Weapons

•Cannonball shot of bottom of petticoat, but she was not wounded •“Molly Pitcher” was nickname for women who carried water to troops during war The outcome of the war was a win for the now free Americans, who were the first to win independence from Britain. The Patriots won by invading Yorktown and fighting for 2 days. The British eventually surrendered, and the Treaty of Paris was then made.
