Washington’s army had to deal with severe cold wearing very poor clothing. Luckily when they were there it was only moderate weather for that area. It never even got to the negative numbers. The lowest was 6° fahrenheit. The main factor was they were basically wearing summer clothes because most of their clothes were torn up. Another cause was there not so great building skills the roofs leaked so hopefully it didn’t snow that much. Many people froze to death or got hypothermia while sleeping. Thank god for good roofs and warm clothes right unlucky for them they did not have those. They were also originally from England where it hardly ever even gets below freezing.
American Revolution Soldiers
In wars almost nothing's more important than the weaponry the soldiers are using. The militia had much less supplies than the British. The British had more ammo, food, soldiers, and guns. Though the weapons on both sides were mostly the same except that the militia had lower quality weapons. Both sides had bayonets for their soldiers. The British soldiers had grenades which is why they were sometimes called grenadiers. Weapons have played a major role in war since the beginning. If there was no fighting or weapons in war it wouldn’t be war.
