On April 19, 1775, a group of 77 Massachusetts militiamen faced some 700 British soldiers on Lexington Green. The Brits were out to destroy the colonists’ weapons depot; the colonists were determined to stop them. The “shot heard ’round the world” was fired and the American Revolutionary War began. This quiz deck’s 48 cards test your knowledge of America’s founding struggle. Each card’s front bears a question, such as “Why didn’t George Washington sign the Declaration of Independence?” or “Which of the original 13 colonies was never invaded by the British?” The answer is on the back. Like its companion deck—What Happened Here? The American Revolutionary War—it’s an enjoyable read for a single patriot or a fast-paced challenge for a whole brigade.
