HISTORY’S MYSTERIES: OF THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR AND COLONIAL ERA – What they didn’t teach you in high school
by Historian & Educator – our own – Herb Kaufman
Many people love to read historical fiction, but this is historical reality. Legends and lore have become a significant part of American history of the Revolutionary War and the colonial era.
Among others, historical reality seeks to answer: “Who is Molly Pitcher and did she really fire a cannon at Monmouth” … “Did George Washington honestly have wooden teeth?” … “Where did Paul Revere actually ride?” … “What really happened on the Fourth of July?” … “What is the true story of the Liberty Bell?”
The history of the American Revolution and the colonial era are full of lore, myths, half-truths and just plain inaccuracies that have become a part of American history.
Every day stories are repeated in schools, museums, and television programs because they are catchy, humorous or entertaining; but we are going to separate fact from fiction.
This program focuses on these mysterious, misrepresented and often imagined incidents and events. You will learn the truth about the Revolutionary War and colonial myths, stories and events that they never taught you in high school.
