1. My person was Lydia Barrington Darragh. She is famous for single handily saved George Washington and his troops.
2. So people can learn more about people in early time periods. We can learn about special people and maybe learn how it affects our lives today.
3. I thought the hardest part was writing the letter. This was hard because I had to become Lydia to write the letter.
4. It made me feel proud. I felt proud because I accomplished this on my own.
Today us playing tug-of-war wasn't a game it was learning, learning about a metaphor. We learned about this metaphor and that the American colonies didn't have to fight British alone they had help. In the beginning they didn't but finally the country who had routed for them from the start of the war finally joined in. France had helped them in the war. The British were stronger and more experienced but even though the American colonies started off with less people the people who had been training and France joined in. Well England still had people sailing over the ocean to come help. When the American colonies got offered something 1 person didn't because they were still a slave and even though the American colonies won there was still slavery so he didn't win anything.
