Friday Fun: Pilgrims to Patriots

I hope all our British friends will watch this with a sense of humor humour. This is not unlike the narrative we are taught in elementary school, in the States (or at least, we were, 30 years ago).

"No More Kings" was part of a series called Schoolhouse Rock!. These 3-minute clips were once a staple on Saturday mornings, aired between our favorite cartoons.

I would love to hear how these events are explained to students here in the UK, and in other parts of the world.

"Conjunction, Junction, what's your function?" Classic...

School House Rock was the best! I've been a confirmed fan since childhood. Amazing, classic, memorable!

No wonder we have such a shallow understanding of history! :)

Favorite - "I'm only a bill."
