The American Revolution
by Sierra Canon
The Continental Army fought long and hard for the victory they deserve. Today the Treaty of Paris was signed. The Treaty of Paris is the official document that represents the end of the war between Britain and The Continental Army.
How did 13 unorganized colonies win a war against England?
It was very unlikely that the greatest economic and military power of the 1700s would lose against the 13 colonies, but it happened. Why? I think it was because the British lacked one thing the Continental Army had, and that was passion. Not only did they have passion but they also had knowledge of the land.
Lexington and Concord
George Washington was another big factor in the US winning the war. He read them a speech and lead them into the war in better shape then before.
The last factor in the US beating the British soldiers was the help from the French and Spanish when they supported them by sending them troops, weapons, and money.
It has impacted other parts of the world by giving them the courage to break off and become their own country. It still impacts the way we live, because we could still be controlled by Britain.
