Revolutionary War, An American View

Teaching Artist: Dianne Moran

The battlegrounds of Valley Forge, Trenton, and others stand witness to the Revolutionary War. However little is known of the battle of Ft. San Carlos, fought on May26, 1780 at Fourth and Walnut streets, right here in St. Louis. Students learn why the colonists revolted, as two–a boy and a girl – dress in period clothing and attempt to identify the strange items from their bags. Everyday life is reenacted as students visualize the problems and solutions experienced during this period in our history.
