|AMERICAN HISTORY

WEEK IN REVIEW

We are well in the swing of things and now we are going to dive deep into the American Revolutionary War. For this unit, we will examine closely the reasons for the war and whether or not those reasons were justified. We will also look at how Enlightenment principles propelled the men of the Revolution to continue fighting when it appeared all was lost.

This week, we will look at the slave narrative of Olauduh Equiano and take a closer look at the famous "Give me Liberty of Give me Death" by Patrick Henry.
