Field Trip and Lesson Plan: Salem Merchants - Patriots and Privateers

When the American colonies declared their independence from Great Britain, the infant nation was in no position to defy British rule of the seas.

Introduce students to this untold story of the American Revolution through this lesson plan (PDF - 5th Grade) and learn about the Field Trip.
