Program Description   Students and adults are taught about the lives, struggles and hardship of being a soldier in the War of Independence. The educator will explain the lifestyles of the men, women and children of the Colonial era. Where they came from, their vocations and how different people from all walks of life were thrust together to become the Continental Army in the United Colonies of the late 18th century. Their articles of clothing and equipment are shown and explained with authentic artifacts and reproductions of the era. There is also a short weapons demonstration (Flintlock Musket and Cannon) shown via DVD broadcast.
Program Format   1. We discuss life in the Colonies prior to the war and the essential causes of the Revolutionary War and why men joined the army.
