The French whose enemy was the British made an Alliance with the colonists. They provided the colonists with naval support, loans, and troops. French allied with the colonists to weaken their biggest enemy, Great Britain.
" You may have outnumbered us, but that does not mean you have defeated us!"
The colonists had to battle against the British on territory that they are familiar with. This gave the Colonist an advantage as to where they can do what. In the Battle of Bunker Hill, overnight the colonists were able to build a wall on Breeds hill in a specific area to prevent the Britsh from easily defeating them.

Compared to the British, the Continental Army was in terrible condition. Their army consisted of untrained and unorganized military units. This helped the British to win the battles with ease.
The lack of having an equal amount of people was a great advantage for the British. It took a very short amount of time for the British to win most battles against the colonists.
The first constitution of the United States began with the Article of Confederation. This stated that the government was not permitted to tax the colonist. Therefore, the government was not able to properly supply and better the Continental Army.
