The United States of America won/drew the Revolutionary War with the help of France,Spain,Dutch Republic and the British (Yes the British also helped the US)

Americas 1st Army was set up during the Revoloutionary War,it was set up trained and led by British troops who had turned on their own country.

Also the Revoloutionary War "Officialy ended" with the singing of the Treaty Of Paris. British people held mass protests in Britain and demanded their King sign the Treaty Of Paris end the War and Bring their troops back home and give America back their independance,the King signed it and officialy ended the war.

Many Historians world wide have diffrent opinions on if the Revoloutionary War was a win or a draw because of the British King officialy ending the war by signing the treaty and the fact that the War was technicaly Brits VS Brits anyway.

Also the British were fighting 3 other more important Wars in other parts of the world at the same time as the Revoloutionary War,even though they were outnumberd in all 4 Wars they still went on to win those 3 other Wars,the Revoloutionary War was the least important as America was a young country with not much for the British Empire to gain,the 3 other wars they were fighting in other parts of the world had a lot to lose and a lot to gain,the troops that were fighting in America were needed elswhere.

Revolutionary WarThere were several reasons that enabled the Americans to win the Revolutionary War. The main reasons are the alliance with France and the Guerrilla Warfare of Marion's Brigade and the attack of British supply bases.

The alliance with the France supplied the colonists with weapons, fleets and soldiers greatly. The Patriots' soldiers were low- experienced and the Continental Navy were newborn army who didn't have enough fleets to defend themselves (The British ships were massive and large in numbers). Only with the support of the French, were able to put up a fight against Britain.

Marion's Brigade were a group of Patriots who used the Guerrilla Warfare strategy to fight against the British. The Guerrilla Warfare is still currently used in wars and it is a series of swift, hit & run attacks.

In the Naval War, the Patriots, rather than attacking the main forces of the British ships, attacked the supply ships and bases in the Bahamas. That caused the British navy to suffer greatly and delay their attacks.

These are the main reasons why and how the colonists of the American Revolutionary War were able to win the war.


Patriots fought for their lives, their

property, and their political ideals.

Popular Support

Many civilians actively supported the

Revolution. Patriots used many

techniques to rally popular support.


Rebellion broke out across the continent.

American generals learned from their

mistakes. Washington inspired loyalty and

patriotism in his troops.

Foreign allies

France supplied money and troops. France

and Spain weakened British forces by

expanding the war. The Dutch helped carry

French military supplies to the Americans.

communication and supplies

Americans fought close to home; the

militia made sure that the British could

not live off the land.

troop strength

Although Americans had fewer troops,

local militia helped swell American forces.

Altogether, 250,000 may have fought for

the Patriot cause.
