The Fight for Freedom
While the Battles of Lexington and Concord in 1775 signified the onset of the American Revolution, they followed years of tension between England and the colonies. This two-part set is a fine introduction to the circumstances and battles of the American Revolutionary War, from the Boston Tea Party to the First Continental Congress to the Declaration of Independence, with a look at such figures as Ethan Allen, Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, Paul Revere, and George Washington. The DVD includes a printable teacher guide. 30 minutes. Grades 4-10.
