You wrote your Chapter 1-2 Test today, which took the entire period. Hopefully, I'll be able to share the results of this test with you next week. You could try to finish off your French Revolution DBA Assignment this long weekend. This assignment is due on Thursday, September 29th. For Section B of this assignment (The Declaration of the Rights of Man) you CAN use some of the clauses more than once.

We finished off the "Revolution" episode of "America: The Story of Us" in class today. I also played "Yorktown (The World Turned Upside Down)" from the Broadway musical "Hamilton". The Battle of Yorktown was the final battle in the Revolutionary War, and it led to the British surrender. As I showed you in class, this website (http://genius.com/Lin-manuel-miranda-yorktown-the-world-turned-upside-down-lyrics ) probably has the best version of the lyrics to the songs from "Hamilton" that I've played for you, since they highlighted parts have explanatory notes if you click on them.
Here's a link to the performance of this song at the 2016 Tony Awards: http://nerdist.com/watch-the-hamilton-performance-from-the-2016-tonys/
I gave you some class time so that you could complete your homework assignment on Thomas Paine's Common Sense (p.22-23), and the Declaration of Independence (p.32) from your History of the Americas textbook. This homework assignment is due on Monday, September 26th. Please make sure that you read Chapter 4 from "The United States and Its People". I've scanned the chapter and put the PDF up on the wiki on the Independence Movements page.
