What educators are saying

I love hanging these up around my room during our American Revolution Unit!! Students love seeing the faces of the people we are talking about!


Who were the important leaders, historical figures, and heroes of the American Revolutionary War? There were many of them. It’s hard to keep track of them all. But with these posters and printables covering 35 important historical figures of the American Revolution, students can get a firmer grasp of the most important event in the early history of the United States.


Use the 35 posters to supplement your existing units of study of the American Revolution. The posters come with 10 suggestions for use and printables to extend the learning.

Each poster has the historical figures:

  • name
  • portrait
  • year of birth/death
  • place of birth
  • famous quote
  • character traits or words to describe the person
  • what they are most known for
  • QR code for further studying and research

The posters are in color with a generous amount of white boxes for easy color printing. Print, laminate and hang or put in a center.

Additionally, there are 35 printables known as The Secret Files (one for each historical figure) that has the student this about these essential questions:

  • The role of the historical figure in the American Revolution
  • The impact the historical figure had on the American Revolution
  • Connections to other historical figures
  • The student is asked to conjecture if the person had not carried through with a decision, event, or idea, how would history have been changed?
  • What’s another interesting or must know fact about the historical figure?


Finally, three extras are included just for fun, early finishers, or assigned for homework or extra credit.

  • America’s Hall of Fame
  • American’s Yearbook 1775 - 1783
  • America’s Most Wanted

The posters and content are targeted at grades 4 - 8 who study the history of the American Revolution.
