Thanks to local history buffs/re-enactors, students enjoyed stories of that fateful 18th day of April in 1775, when Paul Revere and his horse rode into the history books.
Having already taken a careful look at Georgia social studies standards concerning the American Revolution, students became even more knowledgeable as they listened to these accounts of history in the making. We appreciate the sup... (Continued)
