Giddyup! We need to get to the colonists and kill them before the war even starts!
We are armed and ready for war!
We have to secretly wipe them all out!
The British were much more armed and ready than the colonists for the war. The colonists worked hard but still could not train their troops for war enough. They fought bravely and won the war. In the next box, you will see one of the three major battles that happened in New Jersey: The Battle of Trenton. This is where the Continental Army's first victory took place. It was a Christmas night and Colonel Washington's troops surprised and the defeated the British at Trenton.
