The American Revolution
How could thirteen disorganized American colonists win a war and revolution against England, the greatest economic and military power of the 1700's?
Now on to reason number two! The Americans had such good strategy and help from others, that's what brought them closer and actually got to win the war. The French sent 5,000 troops over to the Americans to join them and help them win. Now the Americans did have a higher percentage of help! They actually thought about what to do, before going out and doing it which brought good strategy! George Washington (leader of Continental Army) had a great strategy for as the war progressed! That was to keep away from large battles, and he wrote Congress!
The American Revolution did impact and affect other parts of the world, read below or at the bottom of this flyer to learn more. A victory for the Americans did make them feel better about themselves. They knew that they could fight together in a big war and not get defeated so easily. They knew that what was coming could be a big or small battle to fight.
The American Revolution is an important thing to learn about!
