Here is some trivia from: Trivia4fun.com

TRIVIA:

2) Where was the Battle of Bunker Hill fought?

3) What did John Hancock do to become the president of the Continental Congress?

4) Was Paul Revere full blooded British?

5) How cold was it at Valley Forge?

===== ANSWERS LISTED BY QUESTION NUMBER =====

1) The Massachusetts Militiamen defeated the British at the Battle of Lexington and Concord on the night of April 18-19, 1775. The British were trying to confiscate colonial arms in Concord.

2) The Battle of Bunker Hill actually took place on a smaller hill about 2000 feet away. For unknown reasons on June 17th, 1775 soldiers dug into Breed's Hill, which was not the intended site for the battle. Later Breed's Hill was renamed Bunker Hill so that visitors would not be confused.

3) He was wealthy. He was a merchant that inherited a fortune from his uncle who was a smuggler. This money was used to help finance the revolution. After the war he became the governor of Massachusetts.

4) No. His father, Apollos Rivoire, was French. His mother, Deborah Hitchbourn, was English.

5) Actually the winter of 1777-78 was a mild one at the site 22 miles NW of Philadelphia. The week of Christmas did offer heavy snow and freezing conditions, but there was a thaw in January. The real problem was a lack food, clothing, and shelter caused by negligence and mismanagement by the Continental Congress and the commissary department. Approximately 2,500 out the 10,000 soldiers there died of disease and exposure.
