Storyboard Text

  • Women in the War
  • Should I prepare more blankets for the soldiers?
  • Why, it would be most pleasant if you would!
  • Native Americans in the War
  • Chief, should not we be concerned of the ongoing war between the Americans and British?
  • Leave them, it is merely a British civil war and is none of our concern.
  • Africans in the War
  • So if I enlist for the rest of the war, I'll become a free man?
  • Yea, uh, sure, we'll give you your freedom, or whatever, just join our army already.
  • Many women in the war followed their husbands and their armies, that is if they were generals. During the war, Martha Washington would join Washington's armies at multiple occassions. (This depiction is in no way similar to Valley Forge).
  • Foreign-Born Heroes of the Revolution
  • I was a major general in the Continental Army, and I fought with no pay!
  • I lead the Americans to victory in Baton Rouge and Natchez!
  • And I was also a major general of the Continental Army!
  • Some Native American tribes such as the Shawnee stayed neutral during the Revolution and declared it as merely a British civil war.
  • Espionage/Intelligence Gathering
  • I'm not sure, sir. It's all just a bunch of jumbled up letters with spaces in between them!
  • Well then? What does it say?
  • Most Africans joined both sides of the Revolution to gain freedom. On the Americans' side, most Africans had their promises broken and were forced back into slavery.
  • Weapons/Military Tactics/Military Life
  • Life for us soldiers wasn't that bad, we got a tinderbox, we were able to bring a few personal items, swords, a clean uniform, and sometimes we even were able to use a cannon!
  • Many military personnel were from foreign countries and were a big part in the Revolution. They were just one of the many reasons that the Americans won the Revolutionary War.
  • Back then, many spies sent intelligence to allies by using letters that were written in code. These codes were designed so that the opposing side would find it to be impossible to decrypt the ciphers.
  • Soldiers were able to bring personal items, and were equipped with a rifle, either a melee weapon/small gun, a uniform, and survival gear such as a tinderbox to set fires.
