The telling of 18th-century history using amazing 21st-century technology.  A nutshell chronology of the events

of the American Revolution as told from the perspective of the common and not-so-common people directly involved… and highlighting some of the many captivating places George Washington actually slept!  With a decidedly non-military slant, this tracing of people, places, and events during the War will appeal to a wide audience, both men and women as well as older students.  [See www.historymapping.org for the online version   of this program.]
