She had a sword but she didn't fight. She just led the armies and held the banner. She was a strategist who directed the French army during battle but not an active participant in the actual fighting.

For the most part, the South was fighting on its own turf, giving it the home field advantage. However, during Sherman's March to the Sea, he had surveyed the territory as a young officer, and was familiar with its topography.

Yes, they did, but they were not used on a large scale such as charging en masse to capture an objective. Because of the wooded colonial terrain, infantry and artillery predominated, and cavalry was relagated to tasks such as reconaissance and guarding the flanks of armies.

The British held several advantages and disadvantages during the Revolutionary War. One advantage was that Britain had one of the most fearsome armies in the world at that time. A disadvantage was that they were not very familiar with the terrain of America, which made it easier for the militias to ambush the British.

The only non-neutral European country that was completely free of Axis control during World War 2 was England. Russia was not defeated but did cede ground to German control during the fighting.
