Revolutionary War Children
The Revolutionary War really affected children. When a child's father or big brother had to leave and go fight in the they would be really upset. Not knowing whether they would ever see their father again. Also hearing the loud gun shots all the time would scare them. The children would probably have to do extra work sense less people were there to help with every thing that needed to be done. Loosing a father would also be hard for a single mother could not perform all of the work. For the most part it was very hard on all the children who had family fighting in the war.
