The War of Independence Issue Date: 06-30-1996

Cool Spots imageFrom the Boston Tea Party to the crossing of the Potomac, the War of Independence is a chapter in America's history we remember each 4th of July. Now is a good time to download the entire text of the Declaration of Independence and think about the struggle that followed. Browse through battle strategy maps or sit in on a meeting with a young George Washington. You might even give George III a piece of your mind. Was the War of Independence a good idea? If so, why? Why did the patriots throw tea into the Boston Harbor and not British soldiers? Whether you're a patriot or loyalist, be sure to march out to the front lines at http://odur.let.rug.nl/~usa. Don't forget to bring along your fife and drum.
