Website Spotlight: Revolutionary War Animated Map



Introductory Note:

Welcome to one in a series of posts which spotlight quality websites that I use with my U.S. History survey course students at Azusa Pacific University to enrich the regular material in our learning modules.

In this post, I limit myself to those specific aspects of the website which I find fit particularly well within our face-to-face class sessions (each student is required to bring a laptop to class) or as the basis for the students' regularly-assigned written reactions.

++++++++++

Here are the possibilities:

Prelude to the War

Lexington and Concord

Bunker Hill

The Invasion of Canada

The Battle for New York

Trenton/Princeton

Saratoga/Ticonderoga: The Turning Point

Brandywine and Germantown

The Battle of Monmouth

The Southern Campaign: Cowpens, Camden, Guilford Court House

Yorktown

++++++++++
