Transcript of How was the Continental army able to win the war for independence from Great Britain?
Home field advantage
Home Field Advantage is when you fight or play on your own field or land. The war was fought on the colonists land and they knew the land better that the British. And they were closer to their supplies. The british army had to send letters over on ships to send more troops over. The people in Britain got the news late about needing more troops.
George Washington was a wise leader, he stayed way from large-scale confrontations, which made it seem impossible for Britain to deliver a knock-out blow.
When you fight on your own land the people you are fighting for will cheer for you and help you win by giving you confidence. The British citizens didn't support the soldiers or the war and some stopped paying taxes to pay for the supplies needed to win the war.
Britain's failure to use the loyalist
The british failed to use the loyalist that lived in the colonies. They could have used them as mini-allies. They could have fought with the patriots and turned them into loyalists.
amount of land
With the amount of land that the colonial army had was tremendous. It was impossible for the british to take over all the land, there was so much countryside and they could keep it all under control.
