The American Revolution

1700's

How could thirteen disorganized American colonists win a war and revolution against England, the greatest economic and military power of the 1700's?

The Americans won the revolution, because of many reasons. One of the reasons is because of the army they had, the Americans had a great put-together army. They had strengths in this war, some of them were: their commander, they did receive some help and their patriotism, all of that just gave them a bigger and better chance to have a victory. Although some people do have those strengths, everyone has weaknesses. The Americans problem was that they didn't have very much men to fight the battle with. They also weren't that good of being trained. People do say the British had a great military but, they did have some bumps in the road. Beginning with poor leadership, and King George. The British Army did have a better whole of an army. Being well trained and well supplied, that did out number the Americans.

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!
