SUMMARY: Three lads, who play bugle, fife, and drums, relax at camp during the Revolutionary War. One writes a letter to his mother, but what does he really tell her about what’s going on?
The point of this skit is to review some of the incidents that happened in the American Revolutionary War….in a humorous way! Included is Benjamin Franklin’s kite experiment, George Washington crossing the Delaware, Paul Revere’s ride and more.
