The American Revolutionary War Trivia Book: Interesting Revolutionary War Stories You Didn't Know (Paperback)
Welcome to the 1770s, years of big hats, big wigs, and big ideas. You might have learned about the American Revolution in history classes, but this book is here to tell you everything your teachers couldn't. Get ready to learn all about the American Revolution, from the ins and outs of the Enlightenment philosophy that inspired the war, to which stories you've heard about the Founding Fathers may be straight-up false, how the War of Independence sparked a wave of new bids for revolution from Ireland to Japan, and why the movie where Nicholas Cage steals the Declaration of Independence is a great piece of American Revolution philosophy.
- Who were the big players off the battlefield?
- What does "no taxation without representation" actually mean?
- Was George Washington actually as great as everyone says?
- How did science experiments cause the American Revolution?
- And what was Canada doing the whole time?
Each chapter of our trivia books is broken up into fifteen short sections that will introduce you to major players, major ideas, or majorly weird stories. Unlike your high school history teacher, we're not going to put you to sleep with the names of a million generals, or the dates and places of every time the British and Americans looked at each other funny. To go along with the fifteen short break-downs of the war, every chapter also ends with twenty fun facts or bits of trivia, and five questions to test your knowledge on the American Revolution.
So put on your tricorn hat, ready your stars and stripes, and get ready to learn...
