Battle Of Germantown

The battle was on Saturday, October 4, 1777 and took place in Germantown, Pennsylvania. It was 34 degrees, and cloudy outside. The British was lead by Sir William Howe. The Americans were lead by George Washington. The British forces were divided, so Washington saw a opportunity to attack. They attacked the British garrison in Germantown at the last effort before winter. Washington hoped to surprise the British just like the Battle of Trenton. However, Howe left 3,462 men to defend the British garrison and sent 9,728 men to Germantown, 5 miles north, determined to locate and destroy the American forces. The Americans fought  very good, but the British fought better and ended up winning. 152 Americans were killed, 521 Americans were wounded, and 438 Americans were captured. 71 British were killed, 444 British were wounded, and 0 British were captured.

Rememberance Day

December 7, 1941 was a very sad day. Japan had attacked Pearl Harbor in Oahu, Hawaii. It was Sunday morning and the time was 8:oo. There was cargo planes coming to Pearl Harbor, so when the staff looked at the radar and the was a green dots there they did not thing much of it. Then Japan attacked. They sent planes that bombed from air and submarines that blasted the Pearl Harbor from the water

The bombing lasted for 2 hours. After that we came back better than ever, and got involved with World War 2. We had dropped the first 2  nuclear bombs ever on Japan. We even ended up winning World War 2. There is a memorial for everyone who had died. The memorial was located on the ship called the U.S.S Arizona.

The Kid Who Ran for President was a amazing book. The books about a 12 old kid who ran for president. His name was Judson Moon. Judson had a friend over named Lane. Lane told him he should run for president. Judson thought he was joking, but he wasn’t. Judson made a third party called the lemonade party. He ran in to a problem he had to raise 20 million dollars. Kids from everywhere sent him money. Judson made money by a lemonade stand. After, the lemonade stand he went viral. He was all over the TV. Judson had his first speech at a assembly that his school held. he said if he won he would take away homework. Election day was getting closer and closer, but the Constitution got in the way. People thought he should be eligible so the Constitution was changed. He was getting tired of running, but he had to run cause they changed the Constitution for him. he got invited to a debate. Judson was scared, but he knew he could destroy his change of winning if he made a goof of his self. So he did. Then finally it was election day. He was ahead of President White, but not at 270. Every state was in but California. If White got it the chose would go to the government. California’s votes where in and the person who got it was… You will have to read the book to find it.
