The Revolutionary war from the start to the outcome in the end.

The battles of Lexicon and Concord, Washington's siege on Boston and the failed invasion of Canada in 1775.
Britain had a series of victories until the battles of Trenton and Princeton, when Washington surprised the British.
On July 4, 1776, the Second Continental Congress passed the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia.
Outraged, the British sent more troops. At this point the British were winning.
Britain won many battles but couldn't secure loyalty, establish authority or hold territories. The last phase ended with the British surrendering to Washington.
British products were boycotted and Americans started to weave their own cloth and make their own paper.
The Treaty of Paris finally officially ended the Revolutionary War, two years after the British surrendered to George Washington in 1781. America was now free from the crown.
