American Revolution - Who Had the Better Chance of Winning?
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     The American Revolution had started. The American colonists were fighting to be free from England. Who had the better chance of winning? Both sides had things that would help them. There were also many things that would hurt them in the war.
 
2     The colonists who wanted to be free were called Patriots. They would have a tough battle ahead of them. England was very powerful. Some colonists did not want to fight England. The Patriots would have to fight them, too. The colonists did not have a lot of training. They did not have many cannons or gunpowder. England had a navy. The colonists did not.
 
3     The colonists did have advantages. The Patriots had rifles. They were very good shots. They had a great leader. George Washington would be in charge of the army. He had fought in the French and Indian War. He knew how to fight in a war. He would be a great leader.
