  • Fighting for Rights/Freedom
  • French Alliance
  • From France to the American colonies
  • Longer War = Tired British Army
  • This war has dragged on for five long years, can us British take this any longer? We miss our home and families.
  • The Continental Army and colonists were very passionate about gaining independence and winning the war. 
  • Significantly Outnumbered
  • France became an ally of the Continental Army by supplying them with troops, food, clothing, guns/gunpowder and other things that there were shortages of.
  • Untrained and Unorganized Army
  • What are we doing here? We don't belong, we belong on our farms
  • They don't even know how to shoot! Look at their formation!
  • The longer the war dragged on, the more tired and exhausted the British would become, eventually leading them to give up.
  • Food/Weapon/Clothing/Shoe Shortages
  • All that was left was a box of guns, boots, and corn
  • The Continental Army consisted of no more than 20,000 troops which was four times less than the 80,000 British soldiers (including Hessians).
  • Most of the Continental Army consisted of farmers who had no experience in war and many of the soldiers could not shoot well compared to the highly trained British Army.
  • Since the colonies did not have much money to fund the war, which lead to gunpowder, muskets, clothing, shoes and even food to become scarce.
