Advantages and Disadvantages of Britain and Americans

Post  Belinda K. on Wed Dec 03, 2014 11:28 am

During the American Revolution both Britain's and Americans had conflicts against each other, but when it came to war both these countries had some advantages and disadvantages. The British advantage was that they had professional soldier, had a very big fleet, plentiful money, and 1/3 of Americans were loyal to the Britain's. The advantages were that they were fighting on unfamiliar territory, were fighting without a cause, and were far away from home base. The American advantages was that they were fighting for a cause, had home turf advantages, controlled the countryside, and had french alliance. The disadvantages where that they didn't have much resources, were low on money, and had enemies within their territory (slaves, loyalists, natives).

I’m glad that the 13 colonies won this war because they deserved it and they really wanted to be independent. It really wasn’t fair for them to be controlled by the British specially over a continent, and because they just wanted the colonies for the money because they made them pay a lot of taxes. That’s a really interesting topic Belinda keep up the good work! Smile

I agree with you Romane, it wasn't fair for the Americans to be under the orders of a country that is far away, and especially under disliked conditions. The Britain made them pay very high taxes so they could get wealthier and more powerful. They had to do something to get their own government and finally become dependent.
