We have the advantage and we sha'll win, no excuses, we leave with a victory!
We as patriots of the US would like to give our lives onto defending our country!
Commander George Washington
I will give my troops the victory, we will not lose.
Due to the war being fought on the Americans' ground, this is an advantage for them, whereas this is familiar territory for sneak attacking, having quick escape ways, etc.
Colonists would willingly give up their lives to defend their liberty, homes, children. families, and friends.
Poor Trained Soldiers
George Washington was the Continental Army's commander. He was known for leading successful campaigns'.
Shortage in Supplies
This was a major weakness for the Continental Army, for they always were short of qualified and capable men. There were mainly no more than 20,000 troops at one time and place.
What am I going to do, so little soldiers I'm running out of time! But I am a leader I must be ready and strong.
Few Americans were trained enough to survive in battle. Many could shoot only good when behind protection, but when faced with a wall of well-prepared British soldiers, most colonists would likely turn and run.
They're too well trained everybody runnn!
Scarce items included guns, gunpowder, food, uniforms, and appropriate clothing. In winter, the Continental Army could easily be tracked by the bloody footprints left in the snow.
Due to the unavailable footwear for soldiers, blood tracks from our feet were left behind.
