The beginning of the war started with The Invasion Of New York City which sent George Washington and his outnumber, and outgunned army running away from the British.
The British had 350+ ships and more fire power on 5 ships than the whole american army.
Winter came and put the war on pause but the American army was struggling with diseases and lack of training and that is when Baron Von Steuben came to the army at Valley Forge to help the out
Steuben began with moving the toilet away from the kitchen which was giving the soldiers disintary and he also helped take care of other illnesses.
Steuben then trained 100 men who went on to train another 100 and so on. Steuben taught the men types of guerilla warfare that could take down the British army. The Americans might have less supplies but they are going to learn how to outsmart the Brits with tactics they are not ready for. The American started to use bayonets too to get a close up fight which the Brits were not ready for. And they eventually submitted the Brits by putting them in a lock down till the Brits surrendered
