There were a few advantages that the colonists had. One, they had better knowledge of the terrain. Two, they didn't follow the "rules" for war that existed at that time. It angered the British, but gave the colonists a big advantage. The colonists' biggest disadvantage was lack of supplies and funding, which Benjamin Franklin eventually acquired from France. If any of the above had been missing, I don't think the Patriots would have won the Revolution.
