Two Revolutionary War Battles: Ridgefield and Saratoga
This site is about two Revolutionary War battles, not commonly read about in Social Studies text books. Research was done on these two battles to educate others about them in a fun, interactive manner, and to provide a comparison of the battles. After browsing this site, viewers should know more about the Revolutionary War in general, and specifically more about these two battles that helped the Americans gain independence from England. Both battles provide the viewer with an opportunity to see how much they learned from this site with a short quiz. Also provided are photos, both scanned and taken with a camera, that should help the viewer enjoy the site, while gaining understanding of the information. An opportunity was linked to give the authors of the site feedback on the site, via e-mail. This is meant to be educational for the authors of the site, for future Think Quest entries. This site was created by two pairs of boys. One pair, lives in Connecticut and worked on a Windows platform. The other pair of boys lives in New York and worked on a MAC. The pairs of boys never met, they did all their planning and communication via e-mail.
