Firebrands Wanted Poster Project

Someone who sparks a revolution is called a "firebrand."  Where does this name come from?  There were many important firebrands that sparked the American Revolution.  Once Declaration of Independence was written and signed, many of these firebrands would have been considered traitors by the British.  For this assignment, using Word, you will be making two "Wanted" posters for two firebrands.  You need to include the following information on each poster:
  •  Name of your firebrand
  • Wanted for (put the reasons in here, these should be specific to this person, what did they  actually contribute to the Revolution. this is the main part of your poster.)
  • approximate age during the 1770's
  • Place they were born and where they currently reside
  • Photo of firebrand (If you can't find one, use another graphic that could represent them)
  • The reward for their capture
  • Vary your font size type based on titles, and other information

List of Firebrands:  Samuel Adams, Patrick Henry, Thomas Paine, Benjamin Franklin, Phillis Wheatley, Mercy Otis Warren, Martha Bratton, Prudence Wright, Penelope Barker, Thomas Jefferson, Paul Revere, John Adams, Benjamin Rush, John Hancock, Crispus Attucks, Dr. Samuel Prescott.

Research at least 4 firebrands before you choose your two.  Try to choose one well known one along with one you may not have heard of.
