Just What Do You Really Know About the Revolution? by The Elephant's Child

Take a look at the cool website of the day, The American Revolution CenterExplore their collection, and the timeline of the struggle.

The Center commissioned the first national survey to assess adult knowledge of the American Revolution.  Ninety percent of Americans think that knowledge of the American Revolution and the principles that have united all Americans is very important.

89 percent of Americans expected to pass a test on basic knowledge of the Revolution, but they scored an average of 44 percent.  You can take the test here, to see what you know about the War of Independence, and there’s a reading list so you can bone up.  Enjoy.
