Key Battles of the American Revolution

By Kakina
  • Lexington and Concord

    Battle was the first armed conflict between the Colonists and the British.
  • Fort Ticonderoga

    Lead by Ethan Allen- Patriots captured fort and aquired their cannons, which they later use as defence towards the British
  • Bunker Hill (Breed's Hill)

    The Patriots dug trenches to hide, at the top of the hill, to better attack the Loyalists, The British fell back twice, but on the forth they took over the bunkers. Technically the British "won".
  • Long Island

    The colonists were unable to defeat the British.
    Washington and his troops troops were then forced to retreat to New Jersey then Pennsylvania
  • Saratoga

    This was the Turning Point of the American Revolution. This was because The French finally joined the Colonists, the King of France signed the Treaty of Alliance, and later that spring, the French supplies arrived.
  • Monmouth

    The Colonists were almost capable of capturing the British, however, due to General Clinton's bad orders, the British get away.
  • Savannah

    The British begin moving towards the southern colonies, gaining control of them, and since the Colonists have such a strong army in the north, they are reluctant to send some men down to control the situation, which does not help.
  • Vincenes

    George Rogers Clark is able to capture a British fort, which, after the war, proved an important negotiation with the Loyalists.
  • Chalreston

    The British attack the southern colonies. The Patriots lost a lot of manpower and equipment which gave the British almost complete control over the Southern colonies.
  • King's Mountain

    The colonists fight for the southern colonies, and win a bloody victory! It is said to be "the first link of a chain of evils", which is right because no later than a year, Cornwalis surrenders.
  • Yorktown

    Together, the French and the Colonists trap the British in the penninsula. How? Well, the comander of the French fleet, Admiral François de Grasse, blocked the British with 29 warships on Chesapeake Bay. There for Washington led the Loyalists to Virginia as a n escape, however they were traped, they had no escape.
