Patriotic and Historical Plays for Young People.
Kamerman, Sylvia E., Ed.
The one-act, royalty-free plays in this book dramatize notable events in United States history. Historical selections include dramatizations of the Declaration of Independence, the Boston Tea Party, the Continental Army at Valley Forge, the birth of the Constitution, and George Washington crossing the Delaware and feature such historic figures as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Paine, Molly Pitcher, Paul Revere, and Betsy Ross. Several comedies present a fanciful and lighthearted view of history, three reading plays provide variety and flexible programing, and the short choral readings may be used in informal classroom situations or as curtain raisers before longer plays.
