Fort Necessity National Battlefield has produced a new WebRangers activity which was launched this week. Now children can learn about 21-year old George Washington’s exciting journey on the frontier. In January of 1754 Washington had just returned from a long and dangerous mission to ask the French to leave the Ohio River Valley. He prepared a report for the governor which chronicled how he had to deal with frigid weather, hostile Indians and difficult French soldiers. To his surprise the report was published, with people in the colonies and in England eagerly reading it.
Created in the graphic novel style, this newest WebRangers lets kids see another side to Washington; the young, strong adventurer. Interspersed throughout the story are interactive activities.
Kids of all ages can forget about the “old” George Washington they see on dollar bills and quarters, and learn about the “young” George Washington by checking out this new activity at http://www.webrangers.us/activities/youngwashington/
