Question description

Discussion #5

The British entered the Revolutionary war with clear advantages in population, wealth, and power, leading them to believe that they would be engaging in a quick police action. It was clear to them that once they isolated and removed the radicals in Massachusetts and Philadelphia, the rebellion would be over. The colonists, on the other hand, had a home advantage fighting on familiar ground. They were also fueled by the republican virtue of freedom, and equality, boldly stating "....that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." While these were very inspiring words, the reality was that these conditions were not shared by all colonists.
