We have been studying the American Revolution lately. After reading several accounts of the battles of the war, we watched the old Disney movie, Johnny Tremain. As soon as the movie was over, our son pulled out his army figurines and set up a war in the dining room. He called some of them Redcoats and some of them Americans.
I love it when he learns about history. I love it when what he's learned shows up in his playtime. It does a home school Momma's heart good!
