Lesson

Clashes and Battles and Wars...OH MY!

Lesson Overview

This lesson helps students understand the nature of battles in the Revolutionary War, and that all colonists were not on the side of the "new country" separating from the British crown. Some colonists did not want war at all. 
 Also addressed in this lesson is how the soldiers of each side wore identifiable uniforms, but citizens who helped out with battles (supporting either side) fought in their regular clothes when they had a chance to fight.   These groups of "occasional soldiers"  fought in a new style nicknamed guerilla warfare.
