  • Bunker Hill
  • Concord + Lexington
  • Saratoga
  • Despite their loss, the inexperienced colonial forces inflicted significant casualties against the enemy, and the battle provided them with an important confidence boost.
  • Trenton
  • The fighting at Concord was called “the shot heard round the world” because the colonists were challenging the power of the most powerful nations in the world at the time.
  • Valley Forge
  • He surrendered ten days later, and the American victory convinced the French government to formally recognize the colonist’s cause and enter the war as their ally.
  • Yorktown
  • George Washington crosses the Delaware River, hoping to surprise a Hessian force celebrating Christmas at their winter quarters in Trenton, New Jersey.
  • Fortunately for the Continentals though, Washington did not give up. During this time Washington made several key additions to his officer corps.
  • Just days later, the British General Lord Cornwallis and nearly 9,000 troops surrendered. Yorktown proved to be the final battle of the American Revolution.
