Check out the website for the American Revolution Center

Mr. Darrell gets interesting e-mails sometimes:

November 16th marks the 234th anniversary of the Attack on Fort Mifflin, a turning point in the American Revolution. Students and teachers can celebrate this day in history by visiting the American Revolution Center’s new website to test their knowledge about the American Revolution. Visitors of the site can compare their results to others who have taken the quiz. Please find more information below.

Thanks,

Test Your Knowledge on The American Revolution Center’s Retooled Website

Kids, parents, teachers, and others interested in American history will find lots to enjoy on The American Revolution Center’s new website (www.AmericanRevolutionCenter.org). It features an interactive timeline that allows you to virtually “handle” objects from the Center’s collection, a reading list, a searchable database of lesson plans, video podcasts, and the opportunity to test your knowledge about the American Revolution. By answering demographic questions, you can compare your answers with others who have taken the quiz.

  • Do women know more about American history than men?
  • Does political affiliation impact results?
  • What generation knows the most about the American Revolution?

Find out by taking the survey and share your results on Facebook and Twitter.

Questions include:

  • What are the inalienable rights stated in the Declaration of Independence?

  • Which document outlines the division of powers between the states and the federal government?

Visit www.americanrevolutioncenter.org to take the quiz and find out more about why we now enjoy the unalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness!
