The Southern Campaigns Module

A curriculum module for use in middle and high school classrooms.

This set of three lesson plans will guide your students through the changing British Strategy of the Revolutionary War (1778-1779), the history of key battles and leadership moments in the Southern Campaigns (1778-1781), and the divisive partisan fighting that characterized the conflict in this region. The determination of the Americans through the Southern Campaigns secured independence for the new nation by culminating at the surrender of a British Army at Yorktown, Virginia in 1781 and the Treaty of Paris in 1783.
