What is the importance of the victory at the battle of Saratoga?
Why is Valley Forge important, and what happened there?
It's too COLD!!!
Who is Thomas Pain, and what did he do?
"These are the times that try men's souls"
The victory was very important because it influenced France to join the colonist's side which helped them defend against the British navy.
How was foreign aid helpful, and who contributed?
Valley Forge was very important because it was where the army stayed during the winter, what happened was not good, 1 in 5 people died from starvation, sickness, or hypothermia.
How did the war affect families?
Bet you can't catch me!
Thomas Paine was a writer, what he did is he wrote common sense and used very inspiring words to motivate the army which led to much needed victory that got others to join the battle.
How were loyalists treated in the colonies and was it fair?
They all hate me:(
BOOOO! Support your country!
One big part of the foreign aid was Friedrich von Steuben, he trained many soldiers in close-order drills and disciplined them, along with making them more confident, which was very helpful. Another very helpful foreign aid was France helping us in the fight with their Navy.
It affected families because whenever the husband had to leave to go battle or make his way to one, while he was gone the wive would have to take care of the family all by herself, and on top of that if they had a business to then the wife would have even more to take care of.
Oh my... I wish my husband was here.
Loyalists where not treated fair at all, they had many different punishments for them, for example, tar and feather which would be very painful.
