America’s Victory In The Revolutionary War Was Made More Probable For The Following Four Factors:
Here in the following, we have discussed the four main factors, which were responsible to make America’s victory in the revolutionary war more probable.
So, the four factors are:
- The large landmass of America
- Franch participation
- Great Leader and leadership
- The distance of the mainland between Great Britain and America
Large Landmass of America
The total landmass of the United States of America is more than 9 million square kilometers (exact 9.834 million km²).
Due to the war in this vast territory, it was almost impossible for British soldiers to stop the American rebels.
Especially, the British authority faced difficulties in military operations, finding exact locations of revolutionaries, food and other necessary supplies, etc.
Revolutionaries attacked the Britishers from various parts and used to get hidden, where they could not even find them out.
Due to this vastness, the rebels received a lot of help, which later benefited them as the winning of the war and independence.
Participation of Franch Empire
The American revolutionaries would probably lose the revolutionary war if a great European power like the Franch did not provide military support.
(Although, Spain and the Netherlands also provided support to the colonists. But Franch participation was most significant)
The reason is quite simple – during this wartime, Great Britain was the most powerful country in the world (In the case of military and economy).
Defeating them alone was near to impossible for the revolutionaries.
Hence, revolutionaries asked for help from the Franch Empire.
On February 6th, 1778 France formally entered the war and recognized the United States as a separate nation from Great Britain.
After this entrance of the Franch, the stand of war completely changed and America’s weight became heavy over Britishers.
Great Leader And Leadership
- George Washington
- Benjamin Franklin
- Thomas Jefferson
- John Adams
- Patrick Henry
- Alexander Hamilton
- And more.
I think we all know these great leaders and they need no reorganization.
The Distance of The Mainland Between Great Britain And America
Another major reason for the victory of American rebels is the geographical distance between Britain and America.
Obviously, we know that Britain is in Europe and the USA is on the continent of North America.
The distance is around 6830.07 km.
Due to this long-distance, Britain faced many difficulties in that war; such as in case communication, military and other necessary supplies, etc.
It benefited patriots to stand more and more strongly against them.
