Independence” The American Revolution. The Colonial Williamsburg
This podcast which is interpreted by Bill Barker, reads
the entire Declaration of Independence so being able to interpret it would not
be as difficult for one would only need to listen to it. This podcast fits with
our project so it can be easier to understand what is meant when the
constitution is brought up.

In the illustration there is a focus on three men
marching towards their goal with an American flag right behind them. Since
there is a cannon lying on the floor and men beating on their drums, this might

Spirit of 76”. Therefore, this illustration must demonstrate the mindset and
the drive of the patriots as they strived to achieve freedom.
