Signing of the Declaration of Independence
Battle of Lexington
The colonists wanted their independence from Britain. A committee made at the Second Continental Congress wrote the Declaration of Independence. Thus ending the relationship between the colonies and Britain.
At Lexington the minutemen encountered the red coats on their way to Concord. Here the colonists did the best they could to stop them but the British army was just to much. 8 colonists died that day and 10 were wounded in the effort to stop the British in their tracks.
In the winter of 1777-1778 the colonists had to survive camp at Valley Forge. Though no battle was actually fought here, more than 1/5 die of disease and malnutrition. There were little supplies and harsh temperatures making conditions worse.
