The narrative of the revolutionary era consists of a series of events that eventually led to the American Revolution. Using primary sources and an optional virtual reality immersive experience, students will analyze the effects of the burning of His Majesty’s Schooner Gaspee in 1772. Students will analyze critically and debate the importance of this event from Rhode Island’s history and place in the national narrative of the causes of the American Revolution.
