We appreciate your important role in educating and inspiring young people. We’ve created this web site to inform and inspire children and young adults about the contribution of Hispanic Americans. Our mission is to create a sense of belonging and pride in the heritage of Hispanic American youngsters, and acceptance and respect among all North Americans.
If you have any comments on the content that we have prepared or suggestions for online sites that we can feature, please contact us!
We have created a Teaching Guide for you on the role of the Spanish and Hispanic Americans in the American Revolutionary War. The Guide focuses on National Historical Thinking Standards 1 through 5. Please access a copy here: Grades 7 – 12 Teaching Guide
Resources for the role of the Spanish and Hispanic Americans in the Revolutionary War
Unfortunately, little information is available on the subject of the role of Hispanic Americans in the winning the American Revolutionary War. We have suggestions for books in our Research Center.
We have posted copies of several letters written in the 18th century from French military leaders that attest to the role of the Cubans in assisting to finance the 1781 Battle of Yorktown in our Resource page.
Please read through our site, which has information the important People, Events, and Places in the American Revolutionary War. Start with the Timeline, which takes you from 1776 to 1783, and provides a year-by-year overview of the contribution of the Spanish and Hispanic Americans.
