The lesson begins with an analysis of the famous painting of George Washington Crossing the Delaware. We look at how it was a microcosm of the colonial society at the time, and we note what was not correct to the period.
Then students go to stations or on a gallery walk to read primary or secondary sources, or analyze paintings to discover what life was like for 1) members of the Continental Army; 2) Women in the war; 3) African Americans in War; and 4) Foreign influences in the war.
