About This Lesson

Bernardo de Gálvez was a Spanish general who played a key role in the American Revolution. Without him, the patriots would not have won the Revolutionary War, or at the very least it would have taken them a much longer time to do so. That's a fact! His role was so important that on a wall of the U.S Capitol there is a portrait of him, and he was even granted honorary United States citizenship by President Barack Obama not long ago.

With this book, the students will learn about:

  1. The importance of getting to know our history.
  2. The importance of speaking up if you think government should change something and also becoming a pro-active member in your community.
  3. That Hispanics were here before, during and after the creation of this country.
