Great for teaching American history

on 6/24/2014

They don't make kids' videos like this anymore. The year is 1773, the place is Boston, and the mood is revolutionary. Young Johnny Tremain is an apolitical silversmith's apprentice until a challenging work assignment prompts him to seek the professional advice of Paul Revere, who is huddled in a secret meeting of the Sons of Liberty as they plot the overthrow of the British. Johnny is converted to their cause. We see the Boston Tea Party and Lexington and Concord through his adolescent eyes.

American History
Editors Note
Note Based on the classic young adult novel by Esther Forbes, JOHNNY TREMAIN is both educational and entertaining. Johnny is a young and eager silversmith's apprentice in the colonial period who must find another job after an accident maims his hand. But before he can, he is swept into the struggle for independence, becoming a first-hand witness to the major events leading up to the Revolutionary War. He takes part in the Boston Tea Party, and soon afterward fights in the initial battles at Lexington and Concord, meeting such luminaries as Sam Adams and Paul Revere. JOHNNY TREMAIN explores the efforts that gained America independence through the eyes of a young man, thereby becoming an exciting and edifying look at that important historical period.
