shortly after eight o'clock on the morning of December 26, 1776, George Washington was the leading general, it was christmas night and the soldiers were all drunk. George Washington and the soldiers road across the river and snuck up on the British and they actually won.
Times had taken a sharp turn for the worse. Lexington and Concord had changed everything. When the Redcoats fired into the Boston crowd in 1775, the benefit of the doubt was granted. Now the professional imperial army was attempting to arrest patriot leaders, and minutemen had been killed in their defense. In May 1775, with Redcoats once again storming Boston, the Second Continental Congress convened in Philadelphia.

The questions were different this time. First and foremost, how would the colonist meet the military threat of the British. It was agreed that a CONTINENTAL ARMY would be created. The Congress commissioned George Washington of Virginia to be the supreme commander, who chose to serve without pay. How would supplies be paid for? The Congress authorized the printing of money. Before the leaves had turned, Congress had even appointed a standing committee to conduct relations with foreign governments, should the need ever arise to ask for help. No longer was the Congress dealing with mere grievances. It was a full-fledged governing body.
Fought eighteen days apart in the fall of 1777, the two Battles of Saratoga were a turning point in the American Revolution. On September 19th, British General John Burgoyne achieved a small, but costly victory over American forces led by Horatio Gates and Benedict Arnold.
Thomas paine wrote a pamphlet {book} that inspired the Thirteen Colonies to declare and fight for independence from Great Britain in the summer of 1776.
The victory at Saratoga in 1777 and the Treaty with the French in 1778 changed the war, especially for the British. More French aid to the Continentals was slow. Military activity between the two new allies was slower. The British were immediately faced with conflict with France. So, the British changed their strategy again in 1778. Instead of a full-scale military campaign against the Continental Army, the British decided to put their efforts on the loyalists, who they still believed were the majority of the American colonies.
met as agreed on may 5, 1775 this war after the battles at lexington & concord on April 19th. Sam Adams, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, John Hancock, Patrick Henry, and George Washington were some of the delegates.
