Georgia in the American Revolution Through the magic of a time machine you have been transported into the current year from the year 1800. You personally witnessed many of the major events leading up to the American Revolution, some key battles during the war, overheard some of the Constitutional Convention, and helped structure the constitution of Georgia. Your arrival is extremely exciting for news media, historians, and sociologists. You are practically a movie star! You are going to be on several talk shows and asked to give speeches about the things you have seen. We need to get you prepared! Your task is to prepare to answer questions regarding your experience. You will be asked questions on talk shows and in interviews. In order to deal with these situations, you should prepare a press release that will be given to media outlets. Your press release should include the following items: 1) A map of the eastern United States from the time period that shows: -Where the Battle of Kettle Creek took place -The location of the Siege of Savannah -The location of the Constitutional Convention -The area of Georgia involved in the Yazoo Land Fraud -The location of the Dahlonega Gold Rush Your map will need to be clearly labeled and include a key. It should be all on one 8.5 by 11 paper. This will help members of the press get an idea of your travels back in the day. 2) A typed statement from you titled: “Georgia’s Statehood: Conflict, Change, and Consequences.” In this statement you need to select 3 events and 3 people from the unit that had an impact on the statehood of Georgia. -For each event, analyze how conflict caused a change related to that event. -For each person, analyze how their decisions or actions had consequences for Georgia’s development as a state. The statement should be typed and free of mechanical errors. Remember, MANY people will be reading this and you want to give them the best view of you possible. 3) You will be going live on a talk show or newscast where you will probably be asked the questions: “Since you’ve been here in 2007, in what ways do you see conflict still causing change for Georgia and how are individuals still having impact through their decisions and actions?” We’ll need to hear your answer to that before we let you go out to the media. -Include several examples, historic or modern, that support your answer. You’re trying to show everyone how important conflict and change and the role of individuals, groups, and institutions are. The format of this is up to you, you should include a cover page that has your name, the title of your press release, and the date it is released.
