What We've Been Reading: American Revolutionary War

 

Here's what we've been reading for our history/literature/geography learning from Tapestry of Grace, Unit 4 of Year 2 where the focus is the American Revolution.

 

Most of the books are concentrated on my Rhetoric and Dialectic students, but, there are some Upper Grammar favorites as well!
