If reading about battles tends to make your eyes glaze over, or if your student is confused about who is where in the description, you’ll appreciate these Revolutionary War Animated Maps from History Animated. (Use the menu on the left of their page to select an animated map.)
The animated maps show where troops are stationed and their movements along with text explaining what is happening.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, a good animation is worth ten thousand. After reading book after book about the Revolutionary War and finding only complicated maps with dotted lines and dashed lines crisscrossing the pages, we decided to depict the key naval and land battles using animation technology.

Great tool for the DIY homeschool mom!
