Put on your three-cornered hat, grab your musket, and prepare for battle! You are about to travel back in time to the American Revolutionary War. There you will witness colonial soldiers fighting for independence and the freedom to govern themselves. As part of a television news crew, you will observe first-hand the great courage, determination, and spirit of the American soldiers in their struggle to overthrow the mighty British Empire. Your program will be aired "live" from the scene of the battle that you and your crew members have selected as the most important battle of the Revolutionary War. Your show, which will include strategies and maneuvers, interviews with soldiers, and panoramic views of the battle scene, will even persuade the U. S. Historical Committee to honor this battle with a mural in Washington D. C. It will be the most exciting show on television!
