American Revolution Battle BreakOUT Room
Sample Story line from BreakOut Room: The year is 1775, it still wasn't clear to most colonists what the heck was going on up in Massachusetts. The battle of Lexington could have been the first shots of the Revolutionary War or it could just as easily have been a skirmish between the British army and a handful of rebel hotheads. Alexander Hamilton was not throwing away his shot to make a difference after moving to New York and trying to find something to be a part of. It was this event the inspired Alexander Hamilton to join the fight as a patriot in the Revolutionary War. On March 17, 1776, HAMILTON was commissioned as captain of the Provisional Company of the New York Artillery. Hamilton, the musical will take you on a musical journey to help you discover the answer to this question.
