BATTLES OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION

A Pocket in The Regimental

     The American Revolution was a polical, psychological and economic conflict as well as a military one.  However without military success the American Rebellion would have been rememberred as just that, a rebellion, not a revolution and a failed  rebellion at that.  However, though the Americans did suffer defeats - many of them - they also scored victories even when the victory was nothing more than escaping to fight another day.  Such victories against a superior and more numerous foe were great accomplishments.  The following is a history of these victories and defeats.  The conflicts are grouped in a chronological fashion. There are campaigns, operations, battles and naval battles.  Campaigns will relate operational events with reference and links to specific battles more completely described in their own page. Each link below leads to the story of one such event and related links.
