This Readers Theater will help students to:
~ Become familiar with Patrick Henry's famous speech at St. John's Church that called his countrymen to arms.
It also reviews the difficulty George Washington and Thomas Jefferson had with coming to the decision to declare war on King George, including:
~ French and Indian War
~ Taxation without representation
~ Intolerable Acts
~ The Boston Tea Party
~ Bacon's Rebellion
It works well as either an introduction or a review.
