9. Get to Know the Characters of the Revolution

Thomas Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Paine helped to bring awareness of the need for the colonies to become independent, and Richard Henry Lee got the wheels of independence moving with the first motion in Congress to break off from Britain.

These men and many more had their hands in forming the country we have today, and they deserve to be remembered.
