The American revolution

Storyboard Text

  • Great leadership
  • Fought on home turf
  • French allies
  • George Washington an American general who had led the American colonies during the Revolutionary War. He was also a general for the British during the French and Indian war that would later help him in beating Britain. As a general, he was able to see the way that Britain fought so he knew how they would fight to help greatly in later years when the colonies fought for their freedom.
  • Shortage of food,ammunition,Weapons
  • I'm hungry
  • I'm outta ammo, anybody got some
  • During the war, one of the biggest strengths that the colonies had was the land. Now since the colonies had only been around for some years time the British had only rarely ever been there. So when the British came over to the colines they had no real idea of where they were going, therefore, giving the colonies a great advantage.
  • Unorganized army made up of groups of militias/local citizens
  • We're soliders
  • When the French joined the war as America's ally it allowed for the colonies to finally have a chance at winning the war. At the beginning of the war, the colonies had no navy and were very outnumbered greatly. But when the French joined the war they served the colonies with a navy.trroops,loans of money, and resources to help.
  • Out-Numbered
  • Now before the war, the colonies got a lot of their things from Britain so when the war started they didn't have many things. During many times of the war, Britain would take many things away from the colonies like they would block off ports so that ships carrying ammo and food and things of that nature would not make it to the colonies. And because of many things like this the colonies ran out thing like ammo and food quickly.
  • We worked at mills.
  • One of the greatest weakness of the colonies was that they were untrained and unorganized. Many of the people who fought in the war had come from farms and were just regular everyday people. Who couldn't even work a musket had been the key in the freedom of a new country against arguably one of the worlds most advanced army.
  • We're farmers
  • Lastly one of the things that the British ad on the colines were their numbers. The colonies only had about 20,000 troops when all together. While the British had 80,000 plus 20,000 troops in which they hired. So because of this a lot of the battles between the two weren't successful due to the numbers that had before the French had joined.
