* financial help and military support from other countries * the colonists’ spirit and determination
How the American’s won the Revolutionary War. In my opinion, it was purely by determination and luck. If the British had actually known where their “feet were planted” so to speak, they probably would’ve won. They just didn’t know the territory and therefore, they walked directly into attacks that they were not expecting. The British thought that they had the war won when they stepped foot onto our soil. But, yet, they didn’t. They didn’t have a clue as to what would happen. They didn’t know of the determination that the colonists had to be free.
George Washington’s leadership abilities helped greatly. He did not try to take it all upon himself. He delegated things to other commanding officers, and that was the right move to make. The financial and Military support from France helped quite a lot. If France hadn’t helped them in this war, it would most likely have been lost. Because we did not have the military support that we needed without them. The determination and spirit of the colonists is the best of all. Because no matter what, they kept fighting for what they thought was right. Even if they happened to be wrong on something, I’m pretty sure they would’ve kept fighting. That is what really kept the war alive and kept us from losing the great nation that we call home today. Because the colonists kept pushing through the harsh winters and the attacks lead on by the British. We just kept fighting.
