Where is your uniform? Did you bring anything with you?
George Washington was always short on capable men in the war. Everytime the army made progress in anyway, some would just leave right after to go back to their farms.
Here I Come!
Wait for us!
Barely any American soldiers were trained enough to live in this war. When finding out they would have to go against trained and prepared British soldiers, they would run away.
Not only were the short on men, but they were also short on supplies as well. Food, uniforms, and other necessities were rare for them.
Despite all the CA's weaknesses, lets talk about one of their strengths. The patriotism of their people was so high. Colonists all around joined, to give up their life and to defend their families and peers.
France also hated the English, so of course they would try and be on the Americans side. France provided them with almost 85-90 percent of the Americans gunpowder for the next two years.
I appreciate you helping us!
The final strength of the CA, was the importance George Washington was to his soldiers. He encouraged them and determined them so hard, that they won the war. He really did inspire his men into victory.
