KING GEORGE—WHAT WAS HIS PROBLEM?
Select your Materials
With a humorous, conversational approach rather than a parade of unconnected facts and boring dates, this book draws heavily from primary sources to let readers in on the inside story of the Revolutionary War. In addition to those of the major players, the eye-opening experiences of the lesser-known appear throughout, including John Greenwood, who marched with Washington to Trenton wearing bug-filled breeches, and Eliza Wilkinson, whose silver shoe buckles were pillaged by British soldiers. An epilogue details “whatever happened to…” various figures on both sides of the conflict. A downloadable 48-page activity guide is available separately.
