Colonial Times: Hamilton & Friends!Americana

Alexander Hamilton, George Washington, and others: They were once young, scrappy and hungry! Chores, walking to school. . . what was the flow of day-to-day life? Make your own haversack, then practice writing lessons with a quill, and enjoy colonial games with your friends. Become an apprentice to the local tinsmith, blacksmith or printer. How was the Jefferson cylinder – a cipher wheel – used to decode messages during the Revolutionary War? Follow the path of the Founding Fathers and use democratic principles from the Declaration of Independence and Constitution to create your own system of laws. History has its eyes on you!
