¨War is when your goverment tells you who the enemy is, revolution is when you figure it out for yourself." -George Washington. One of the greatest men of the American revolution. He was there for the french and indian war, the Pre-war polotics, the boston massacre, the boston tea party, and the treaty of paris. He knew the Mens perspective and the moms persepective. But, he was not the only great thing about the American Revolution. 

 

You might think that the French and indian war was between the French and the indians but, you would be very wrong.

 

You are walking through you town with plenty of time on your hands so you decide to go to the American Revolution museum to learn a bunch of new things.You walk into the musem and pay for the exclusive tour.¨Hi! I am George Washington! I will be your tour guide. You look around and many identical people are saying the same thing but you go along because this was part of the tour.

 

You go to the French and Indian war section to get a better understanding of the American Revolution. George starts to talk ¨ The French and Indian war was between Great Britan and France. France was expanding into the Ohio river valley and Britan brought conflict by claiming that the land was there's.  

The French And Indian War 

Introduction 

This is the british fighting and shooting. 

    This is a british           soldier. 

Later Britan Declared war. The war started in 1754 and ended in 1763 with British victory and a treaty of paris- the document that ends the war - the war (Also known as the seven years war.) was finally over!!" George finished and started to point to random things,but,you wern't listening you were deep in thought. Why does everyone think that war is the answer? We have had the French and Indian war, the war of 1812, the revlutionary war, world war 1 world war 2 and more. I get that some of the wars shaped our country but why do they go immediatly to war? War is brutal and people give up the greatest thing that they can ever get- life. I think that now that world war 2 is over no more war's should EVER be fought. Things should be talked out and if they cant be talked out things should be arranged, like a compromise. War is not the answer to everyday problems. Sometimes you have to push through the problems, and give things away that you might not want to give away but, guess what; that is just life. "You ok?" George asks. "Yeah" you say returning to the real world after being in the world of thought.      

Now we are entering the Revolutioary War Section. "Feel free to look around this is the self giuded part of the tour." George said. You walk over to the first wall with posts that you read from and you read the first one. The sugar act: The sugar act passed taxes on Sugar, coffe, and molasses. Molasses was important in producing rum. The colonists reacted by increasing smuggiling, (Stealing) bribing tax officials and holding verbal protests. You move onto the next post this one is all about the stamp act. 

Pre - War Polotics 

The stamp act stated that colonists had to pay for stamps on printed material.The colonists reacted buy orginizing themselves into a group of resistance called The Sons of liberty. This grop contained Samuel Adams, Benict Arnald, Bengiman Edes, John Hancok, Patrick Henry, John Lamb, Joseph Warren, Paul Revere, William Mackay, Alexander Mcdougall, James Otis jr. Benjamin Rush, Issac Sears, Haym Soloman, Charles Tompson, Tomas Young, Marinus Willet, and Oliver Wolcott. They also began to use the slogan  No Taxation Without Repersentation. Which means that they didn't want to be taxed without there goverment having a say with what they tax them on. You continued. The townshed act. The Townshed act taxed lead, paint, glass, paper, and tea. Letters went back and forth between the colonies so that they could unite in freedom forcing the britsh to make the next act; the quartering act. This act required colonists to provide housing, food, supplies, and even alcohalic bevreges  to the british soldiers. The soldiers were in a time of peace so the colonists wondered why so the colonist wondered why they needed food and supplies.

 The colonists did not want to pay the tax.  This makes me wonder why the British kept taxing the colonists instead of finding another way to get the money. The colonists were rebelling, so,they should have stoped and found anothert way sonthat war didnt have to break out and the british could continue ruling. It's not like I wanted the british to win, it's just that they could have made diffrent desisions. Finnaly George Washington came back and took you to the next section.      

 

 

The Boston Massacre

 

"What did you learn?" Gegorge asked. " well,I learned about the sugar act the stamp act the townshed act and the quartering act." You say out of breath. You come to the next room and it is filled wuth artifacts like guns and cannons. Then George started to talk. "Alright this section is all about the Boston Massare." George said. You guys walk over to the acinet guns and he starts to talk again. 

The Revolutionary war starts!!

"The Boston Massacre was one of the crasiest gun accidents of all time! My favorite actually! The Boston Massacre was an accident on the british. There soldiers shot many colonists after getting annoyed with the colonists for throwing rocks and teasing the soldiers.I don't think that this was an accident. I think that they had control of the guns so it was thier fault when they pulled the trigger. I think that the british should have apologized once they had done this, I also think that no matter how annoying or wierd a person is dosen't mean that they deserve to die. Also, I think that the british got annoyed with the colonists teasing them and distracting them so they decided to shoot to scare the colonists. The soldiers swared that it was an accident but, however not many people believed them. Not even myself!" Do you think it was an accident or did they do it on purpose? George finished looking off into the distance as if something incredible was just beyond of this room. You stand there trying to figure out what he is staring at. You finnaly say "So what's next?" 

  The colonists and the british. 

   The Boston massacre                   beggining 

This is the colonitsts fighting the british. 

We walk down the hall and intoa cooridor and he leads you to a small door. You open the door and everything that you can see is shiny and bright. The room is filled with tea and ship models. You make a move to touch a ship model but he slaps your hand. ¨Ow!! What was that for?!"You say feeling the heart beat in you hand insead of your heart. ¨You are not supssed to touch thosse!"He said sternly. ¨Now, as I was going to say, In the Boston Harbor on December 16th 1773 a group of colonists dressed as if they were Mowhawk Indians and boarded 3 british tea ships. They worked quickly dumping presicly 342 chests of tea into the harbor. That is 92,000 pounds of tea! What they dumped was worth more that 700,000 dollars! 

"Ah....yes, next is my favorite the act where the colonists take a stand!" 

The Boston Tea Party  

You could also buy 2 regular Houses and 50 apartments with 700,000 dollars. Isn´t that cool? I think that this is a clever idea. I believe that this had a HUGE impact on the british because they were already in debt from the French and Indian war, But they now had to pay for all of this tea now and it was a good way to get across to the british and say we are a free country so we do what we want to do. The british resulted in 5 more laws!"George said with a grin on his face. What were the laws?" You asked intruged. Ẅell there were the Boston port act, the Goverment act, the Quartering act, and the quebec act." ¨Cool¨ you say. You walk into the final room thinking about what might be going through the minds of the moms and the men.   

 "My kid! My kid!! Is  he ok? Will he come home?Did someone kill him? I miss him!! Will he come home?  All thosse memories washed doen the drain!!! I just want to see him again!! This is what goes through the mind of a mom of a teenager at war- sad things. There is no way of knowing if your child or family member is ok. I would HATE to be a mom of a soldier but I would be proud that my child would be doing good for our country. I would be scared though that I would lose them. What would you feel like?

Mom's Perspective 

This room was small and narrow and there was only 1 thing in the entire room- the offical and original Revoluionary treaty of paris doucument. It was in a glass case, and was yellow and had writing that was barely visable. You strained to read it but read about 1/2. "The Treaty of paris was 1 of the greatest Treaty's ever signed-in my opinion. It gave us our now standing freedom and now we are free to be who we want to be, and that is why I am here- to teach kids like you that not only did the the American Revolution 

My face is red and my hands are numb. The cold of war is getting the best of me. All I can hear is gun shots and I fear that I will be the next to pass into the ¨Better world¨ and no longer be I in this so called amazing world, thats really not that amazing. It's not that I want to die it's just that I don't think that the world is not all that it is cut out to be. I mean there are bad people in the world. I was drifting off into outer space forgetting the horror that was going on around me. Soon I drifted off even more than I had ever gone before. Even if I tried to open my eyes there was darkness still haunting me. But something was more fearing to me. It was that the earth-the ground- was far from reach. 

Treaty Of Paris 

Men's Perspective 

The offical treaty of paris document

Declare our independence, but it made you who you are and shaped our country to be ready for great things - things like you and I am excited to see what you do in life and I am ready for you to make a diffrence just like the American Revolution did. Now for the facts,The treaty of paris was signed on September 3 1873 . This was the day that we ended the terrible war and made us here today. " George Washington said powerfuly. "Wow that was powerful!" You say-kindly. "I try!!" He says. He leads you out and you leave knowing that you had learned very powerful lessons. You learned that every struggle- every war- we had was an effort to make the world a better place and that you could make that powerful impact. And Finnaly that you should be grateful for every soldier that laid down there life for you because it only made us stronger!!!
