The United States was born in an age of war and revolution. The Seven Years’ War and the American Revolution both serve as touchpoints for teaching about George Washington’s individual contributions and the broader impact of these conflicts on 18th-century society. From Washington’s own leadership challenges and opportunities to the decisions individual men and women made to join the Patriot cause, the sessions during this program will help students understand the complexity and significance of war in the creation of the country.
