Who won the American Revolution?
1) Why was the Battle of Saratoga in 1777 the most important battle of the Revolutionary War
(1775-1783)?
It was a major defeat for the British, and it showed the difficulty the British generals had with
their troops, as opposed to the Continentals (Americans).
2) Identify what happened at the Battle of Yorktown in 1781?
The British surrendered!
3) How was the fight for freedom different for slaves than it was for Continental soldier?
For the slaves, fighting for the British in the war could mean freedom.
4) Why did many American slaves during the American Revolution ultimately decide to go back to
Britain?
Slavery had been abolished already, without a civil war, so slaves would be free making a living
there as opposed to the future U.S.
5) Point out the brutality that American troops committed to the Native Americans who fought with
the British.
The American troops would burn the Native Americans’ villages and enslave their prisoners,
which went against the accepted rules of war.
6) Explain what happened to women in the Revolutionary War.
Some women dressed up as men and fought in the war, but they did not get much out of the
revolution. They were still considered wards of their husbands. The idea of Republican
Motherhood began to become really important, however, after the revolution.
7) Rationalize the idea of Republican Motherhood and how it pertained to American women.
American women needed to be educated in order to educate their sons in liberty and government
for the future generations to learn from.
8) What was revolutionary about the Revolutionary War (1775-1783)?
It was about creating a land where the people who owned it had the explicit control over what
happened in the country, and that they had the right to decide for themselves how they should be
governed.
9) Explain the idea of true religious freedom as it applies to the time right after the Revolutionary
War.
True religious freedom after the war meant that there was a separation between Church and State.
10) How did Eli Whitney’s invention of the Cotton Gin in 1793 change the institution of slavery?
The invention of the cotton gin revitalized slavery, which was on a decline until that point.
11) Identify how John Locke influenced Thomas Jefferson.
Locke had the idea of Life, Liberty and Property, which Jefferson changes to Life, Liberty, and
Pursuit of Happiness because slaves were considered property at the time, and one couldn’t go
around freeing other slaves.
