The colonists were warned that the British were coming by Paul Revere. The British thought that it would be a surprise attack when the minutemen came. The battle was won by the Britain in cheer and joy.

3: Family, Fun, Food and Fireworks | Concord | and | Later the British arrived in Concord looking for supplies that the colonists had hidden. The militiamen saw the results of the battle at Lexington when the British troops came upon them. The militiamen stood their ground and fired with the British troops against them. Soon afterwards the British were trying to get away. The American colonists had won.

4: There's a whole lot of party going on | The American colonists seized Bunker hill and fought strategically. The American colonists shot the British troops when they saw the whites of their eyes over the hill. Even though the colonists were not persuaded to leave the hill the American colonists lost to the British. | Bunker Hill

5: Saratoga | King George III fought to try and separate the colonies. The Americans stuck together and won the battle. Since the American colonists won the battle it encouraged other countries(mostly France) to help join the fight.

6: Valley Forge | George Washington and the American colonists suffered through harsh winters with a low supply of food, clothing, and shelter. Some of the troops and officers left. Thomas Paine gave inspiration and a feeling of anger to the Americans toward Great Britain.

7: The American troops and the British troops came to their final battle. The French navy and the American colonists surrounded the British troops and Great Britain surrendered. This was the battle that made the colonists officially Americans. | Yorktown

8: Treaty of Paris of 1783 | This document explained that the British recognized the U.S. as an independent nation. It gave U.S. territory between Atlantic and Mississippi. It promised that Britain would withdraw their troops from the U.S. It said that the Americans could fish off coast of Canada.

9: The Declaration of Independence | This document was before the American revolution. It explained the grievances of the colonists. It explained what the King did to make the colonists leave. It also said that the colonists were ready to go to war. This is how the American Revolution got started toward becoming an American.

10: Important People of the American Revolution | King George III: The king over Britain that made the colonists leave in the first place. He fought against the American colonists. George Washington: The general over the colonial army that was trained by the British. He soon later became the President of the United States. Thomas Paine: He gave encouragement to the American colonists through his writing and his words. Benjamin Franklin: Warned the colonists of what they were getting in to. Gen. Howe: A general over the British troops that was loyal to Great Britain. John Jay: The chief Justice that was a part of the Treaty of Paris. British Troops: The soldiers that fought under King George III(Loyalists). Colonists(Americans): The people of the Thirteen colonies that fought for their independence against Great Britain(Patriots).

11: Amazing Fun on the Fourth | Articles of Confederation | The strengths of the Articles of Confederation: The Americans could print money, could declare war and peace, could maintain army and navy for national defense, could enter into treaties with Native Americans, created a government for the territories, established steps on how a territory could become a state based on its population, Did not allow slavery, new states would be equal to existing states, each state had one vote, size of the state did not matter, all states had to agree unanimously to pass a law. The Weaknesses of the Articles of Confederation: Congress could not levy taxes or provide for its own revenue. Congress could only ask the the states to make contributions for the general good and did not have an executive branch or court system. Congress could not regulate trade, even trade between the thirteen states.

12: Turning Point in the War | Saratoga was the Turning point in the war. The British plan failed to separate the colonies. The colonies had the British surrounded and they won the battle. This victory made France join the war because they felt more confidence and believed that the colonists could actually win.

13: How did leadership impact the outcome of the American Revolution? | The leaders that the American colonists had gave the people confidence and believability in themselves. The encouragement in one another kept them going. Staying as one nation and having the leaders that they did have pushed them toward winning the American Revolution.
