When we pretended to have the war in class today, America won again. I was an American too, so I was very happy when we won the war. It was exciting for the Americans because we won the independence that we always wanted. If England had won the war, they wouldn't even have won anything! They would of had the same thing that they always had: America. We played tug-a-war to represent our Revolutionary War. The red team represented England because of the soldiers. America represented the blue team because of the U.S.A. The white team represented the French and the French helped America win the war. Although, there was one person on the white team who didn't help America and helped England. He was a German Hessian. He went to the England side and helped them. We almost never won independence. England was SO close to winning. They were not even two inches away. It felt terrible. Luckily, once France came to help us, we starting to get closer to winning. Before the "war" Mr. Solarz, pulled America over and told us that if we won we would get something just like America really did in the war. We would get a free chair pass (a day where you can sit in the swirly chair) and a free homework pass. Then, he puled me over privately and told met that I was a slave, so even if I won the war I wouldn't get anything. It felt really awful. I had to "risk my life" fighting for something that, even if I won, I wouldn't get anything. I couldn't imagine being a real slave and having that happen to me. I now know that America won because of all of the help they got from France and the preparing and fighting. I'm am so glad that America won the Revolutionary War!
