Choose a character from American history involved in some aspect of the American Revolution from 1763-1789. Using a minimum of five good, academic sources, write a five-page essay about that person and his/her contributions, accomplishments. Document appropriately using correct footnote and bibliographical forms. You may choose anyone, but I have provided a list of some lesser known or unusual figures that might appeal to you.
