Honest question to @sendahms and other @mngop & @MinnesotaDFL legislators. If I am teaching the Civil War to 7th graders, how much time should I devote? What key events, people, concepts should I discuss? How should I assess? Remember, I have 50 minute class periods. #mnleg
I'll take it another step further, using the same parameters?
How much time, ... etc. should I devote to the #WWI? Who do I include, exclude? What outside resources can I bring in and which must I avoid? Remember these are 13 year olds and we have 173 school days.
Repeat this for the following:
#RevolutionaryWar
#Warof1812
#MexicanAmericanWar
#IndianWars
#SpanishAmericanWar
#WWI
#WWII
#Vietnam
#KoreanWar
#ColdWar
#GulfWar
#WarInAfghanistan
#WarOnTerror

What battles do we focus on? How do we build context? Outcomes?

3 JAN 1777 -BATTLE OF PRINCETON #RevolutionaryWar
The American army led by Gen Washington defeated British regulars in a meeting engagement battle outside of Princeton, NJ. It was the second major victory for the Army in ten days, and arguably saved the fight for independence.
As they advanced on Princeton on the morning of 3 Jan, the Continentals encountered a column of British regulars commanded by LT Col Charles Mawhood marching to reinforce Cornwallis. Almost simultaneously, the opposing forces deployed and the battle was joined. #Armyhistory
The redcoats enjoyed an early advantage, but Washington rallied retreating Continental and militia units, then personally led the counterattack that drove the enemy from the field. The Americans then attacked and defeated the British garrison in the town of Princeton. #USArmy

@NigelBiggar And if you were the only country writing the history of English civilization that would be the case. But you are not and English acts can no longer be differentiated from those of Germany. True, the acts may be done in small concentrated acts, like enslaving Beothuks
