  2. 2.  Due to “unjust” legislation implemented by Parliament, the American colonists believed that they should be free from “British oppression.” Such tension ultimately resulted in the American War for Independence. Today, we are going to travel back in time to observe the key battles of the American Revolution. Image that you are a colonial journalist reporting on the scene of such a battle. What do you see? Where are you located? What do you feel or smell? Who are the key players involved in this historical event? These are a few of the questions you will need to keep in mind as you prepare your article for the Colonial Gazette. • Examples of a colonial newspaper article:

Include your gathered information in a one page article for the Colonial Gazette.
  4. 4. In order to complete your research and effectively compose your colonial newspaper article, you will need to utilize the websites and materials provided below.
