music for different reasons as: expressions, feelings, making fun of enemies, etc. Some of the popular music was "Yankee Doodle". They would sing these songs around camp fires, during battles loading fire etc.

throwing snowballs, stones, and sticks, and a
squad of British soldiers. Several colonists
were killed and this led to a campaign by
speech-writers to rouse the fire of the
citizenry.The British soldiers were there to
stop uprisings about repealing the
townshend acts but ended up causing even
more conflict.

There were many weapons used during the Revolutionary War.
The most common weapons used were, muskets, cannons, flintlock pistol, swords and sabers. These weapons were popular because most of them were affordable for self defense and offered useful skills while in battle. Others that offered group protection rather than self were used because of the great damage they would do. Without weapons in the Revolutionary War, defending yourself and others would have been a lot harder.
