Pre-Revolutionary War Exploration

This gallery provides students with context into how the Colonists arrived in the New World, the Native Americans they encountered, and the lives they created for themselves that sparked their desire for their own government. The students can use this gallery to see the time period that led up to the Revolutionary War and to refresh their minds on why the Colonists fought for their beliefs. Additionally, the students can use this gallery to explore the Colonists desires for freedom of religion, a government with represenation, and the key players who influenced those wishes.
