Revolution Rock...helping review topics

Schoolhouse Rock! is an American interstitial programming series of animated musical educational short films that aired during the Saturday morning children's programming on the U.S. television network ABC. The topics covered included grammarscienceeconomicshistorymathematics, and civics. The series' original run lasted from 1973 to 1985.  In that time, they did a series called "America Rocks!" To help review the Revolution, I thought I'd post some relevant episodes. None are more than 4 minutes long.  See if your parents remember them.

No More Kings - 1977 - Boston Tea Party and Declaring Independence

The Shot Heard 'Round the World - 1976 - Lexington & Concord, plus Revolution Review

Fireworks - 1975 - The Declaration of Independence
