These two battles began the American Revolution. Referred to as the "shot heard round the world," it officially began the war as of April 1775.

The Second Continental Congress met in Philidelphia, PA to form the Continental Army to battle the British. They were the acting government in the colonies and sent a petition for peace called the Olive Branch Petition. George Washington was selected as the leader of the army due to his experience in the French and Indian War.

During this time, women were seeking greater political involvement through desires for suffrage and greater educational opportunities. Republican women were responsible for teaching their families republican values, which increased the importance of women in the American political culture. One of the many advocates for women's rights was Abigail Adams.

The Declaration of Independence listed the grievances that the colonists had against King George III. Written by Thomas Jefferson, it advocated for natural rights and independence from British control and was signed on July 4th, 1776.

Explain what America gains:

The Battle of Saratoga was the turning point of the revolution, the American colonists were able to convince the French and Spanish to aid them through their great victory. Foreign countries helped the American forces through the difficult days ahead.

The winter at Valley Forge was harsh and difficult. 1/5 of the soliders died from starvation and disease. Eventually Washington obtained help from the French to train the inexperienced American forces.

Washington and the American forces were able to trap the British with the help of the French, laying siege to the city and forcing the British to surrender. This was a key victory for the Americans and ended the revolution.

The American gains after the Revolutionary War included a new independent country, the boundaries of the US were extended to the Mississippi River, and the colonists were free from the oppressive leadership of the British. This revolution also inspired many independence movements against absolute power in the future.
