Revolutionary War Continental Army TOOB®
The American Revolutionary War was a prolonged conflict between Great Britain and 13 North American colonies, as well as their French allies, that lasted from 1775 to 1783. The main reason for the unrest amongst the American colonies and the eventual full-on war was due to the large taxes the British government had imposed upon them. Events like the Boston Massacre and the Boston Tea Party only made matters worse, and in 1775 British soldiers and Colonial soldiers opened fire on one another, thus beginning the war. Control of the Continental Army was then given to George Washington, who supervised it as well as each state’s militia. Join forces with Washington and some of his best trained soldiers, and take home a piece of American history!
