The American Revolution: The War of Independence

Warning: This video contains an image of a mass grave. Teacher discretion is advised. In the mid-18th century, Great Britain had formed thirteen colonies on the North American east coast. This would soon be where a revolution took place, where colonies would fight against their motherland, Great Britain. In this film, we will show events such as the seven year long war, the Boston Tea Party and the origin of the Declaration of Independence. We learn concepts such as triangular trade, the Founding Fathers, separatists and federalists. How is it that thirteen small colonies in North America were able to succeed – against a global power such as Great Britain? And what was life like afterwards for the citizens of the new country, the United States? How did Native Americans and slaves fare? In this film we will learn about the American Revolution, the War of Independence.
