    Cool Website This was the document that said that after the Patriots won the war, we will make a place where there won't be any taxing, no army, no control over states, states had more power than the government, and they didn't have many laws. This effected the country by not having any money, or protection. This article was a fail which lead on to the US Constitution. #failgovernment

    Cool Website When the British troops led by General Cornwallis set camp at Yorktown, Wahington thought this would be a great place to trap the troops. So, the Patriots and some French soldiers went and drove away British ships so Cornwallis's soldiers were trapped and in 3 weeks they finally surrendered. This was the last battle which showed Britain that the colonists had won finally and that Britain had to live with that.#wonwar
