Revolution Timeline

  • Battle of Lexington and Concord part 1

    The battle of Lexington and Concord was the first engagements of the revolutionary war between British troops and the minutemen, who had been warned of the attack by Paul Revere. This bloodshed along the eastern seaboard was the beginning of the continental army.
  • Lexington and Concord part 2

    This event was a big impact on history because if this war had not been fought then the revolutionary war would not have taken place. This means that America wouldn’t be a country, so we would be under the control of England. Therefore none of the later events in the revolutionary war would have taken place and the world would be a whole lot different.
  • George Washington chosen as General

    George Washington was chosen on this day as the commander in chief of the continental army, by the continental congress. Who issued 2 million bills of credit to fund the army.
  • George Washington chosen as General part 2

    A new ending that could’ve been would be if George Washington wouldn’t have been the one chosen. If this happened we probably would have lost the revolutionary war. nThis is because George Aashington was very skilled and experienced. He also showed a lot of leadership and never gave up. I don’t think we would’ve made it without him.
  • The Declaration of Independence

    The Declaration of Independence was adopted by the second Continental congress. Following a decade of agitation over taxes and a year of war, representatives make the break with Britain. King George III isn’t willing to let his subjects go without a fight, and loyalist sentiment remains strong in many areas. America’s primary allegiance is to their states.
  • The Declaration of Independence part 2

    Creating a new ending would be if King George III had read the Olive branch petition. If he had done this then we could’ve had a much more peaceful break from Britain still ending with America but a lot less war to get there.

    The battle of Trenton and Princeton

    In the battle of Trenton and princeton General Washington broke camp at Trenton to avoid a British advance. They crossed the river and started attacking the British rearguard as they were waiting for the river to freeze resulting in a win. Creating a new ending would be if they had not crossed the river. If they hadn’t crossed it then the Hessians would've walked across the river when it froze over and trapped the Americans, forcing them to surrender resulting in a loss.
