places where the Revolution happened can be visited today. Walk
into the room where the Declaration was approved and signed. Stand
where the Kings Mountain loyalists were trapped and imagine being
surrounded by an enemy army. Visit the home that Abigail Adams ran
while John was in Congress and where she wrote him about events
in New England. Imagine yourself a British soldier under siege on
the Yorktown peninsula. The National Park Service, state park authorities,
and others maintain these and many other historic sites for the
