Our Family Tree – American History

This fall we will be studying Early American history just to the Civil War.  My mother is the genealogist in our family has with the help of many family members compiled an organized family tree. She included stories of our ancestors where she could either through word of mouth or newspaper clippings.  While visiting the United States we took the time to look up some of our family members to see if any served during the American Revolutionary War.  I knew there should be several.

Our plan is to then follow this ancestor and show where and how they lived. What would their life have been like?  My hope is to make history personal to them through a member of our family.
