Revolutionary War - Term 3 Book List

Well they say, "better late than never" and that's the way I feel about this book list.  Spring came and went so fast with graduation.  Then  softball, baseball, mixed with haying season here on Drywood Creek and I didn't get to post this. So without further ado, here is our American Revolution family read aloud third term book list....

As you can imagine by this list, Term 3 did not fit easily into a 12 week box.  It carried over into summer and may carry over to fall.  :))  You may notice Term 2 and Term 3 meshing.  Because the topics were so closely related, there was not a clear dividing line.  The books with asterisks (**) indicate books we did not read fully, rather we referenced or read sections from them.  You can view Term 1, Exploration, here and Term 2, Colonial America,  here.


I would like to continue this time period with the following resources, but not sure how time will permit....

Steven Kellogg's Yankee Doodle by Edward Bangs

If we don't get to them this summer, we will start off with them our fall term.   So many books....so little time :))
