Mission US – Interactive History Game

Posted on February 8, 2012 by


This is an awesome website for students to learn about two important times in American history the American Revolution and Slavery. It is provided by funding from Public Broadcasting.

Description from the Mission US website.

“Mission US is a multimedia project that immerses players in U.S. history content through free interactive games.

Mission 1: “For Crown or Colony?” puts players in the shoes of Nat Wheeler, a printer’s apprentice in 1770 Boston. They encounter both Patriots and Loyalists, and when rising tensions result in the Boston Massacre, they must choose where their loyalties lie.

In Mission 2: “Flight to Freedom,” players take on the role of Lucy, a 14-year-old slave in Kentucky.  As they navigate her escape and journey  to Ohio, they discover that life in the “free” North is dangerous and difficult. In 1850, the Fugitive Slave Act brings disaster. Will Lucy ever truly be free?

Other missions are planned for release in 2013 and 2014.
