A growing number of American manufacturers produced weapons on government contracts, as the domestic arms industry expanded to try to meet the demand, but they could not sustain the American troops through a long conflict. Success on the battlefield ultimately depended on the hundreds of thousands of arms supplied by France and Spain. Shipments of arms and ammunition from France began arriving in 1776 and continued for the rest of the war.

    Wait until you find out what proportion of the colonists actually believed in gaining independence from England

      It was roughly 45% patriots, 20% loyalists, with the remainder nominally neutral.

    AT times it's makes sense to use your enemies weapons. You have greater deniability and you may be able to replenish your ammo from their shit.

    Yeah, our revolution was a proxy war between Britain and France (and to a lesser, like much lesser, extent: Spain), if we're being totally honest. It's not something we advertise or brag about (obviously), but it's not uncommon knowledge either.

      A revolution because Britain protected the colonists against France in the Seven Year war and the Brits rightfully wanted to get some money from the colonists for the cost of that war.

      That being said, I wonder how history would have turned out if the colonies actually got seats in the British Parliament.

        Well considering we just wanted representatives and to have them stop taxing us to death, we’d probably be the largest country in the world given we’d have merged with Canada.

          A split was unavoidable. The colonists were becoming a separate culture and powerful enough in their own right they didn't want to be bound to a government across the ocean. Dominon under the crown may have been possible like what Canada had until the late 1800s.

        Honestly, I don't think the colonists actually wanted representation as much as they wanted the taxes to fuck off.

        And, if you'll pardon my schizoid theorizing for a second, I don't think the relatively light burden of the taxes themselves was what freaked the colonists out to the point of rebellion. I think that, after a century and a half of relative self-governance under their colonial charters, the colonists had come to believe that their colonial charters were fairly sacrosanct and that the status quo was guaranteed. So when parliament started exerting even the lightest of pressure on the colonies, it was a shock, and when they revoked the Massachusetts charter they may as well have just outright confirmed their most paranoid fever dreams.

          It was a bunch of rich dudes not wanting their racket muscled in. All of the mafiosos, sorry, Founding Fathers were rich landowners and want total control instead of bowing to England. They dressed it up as a Revolution to get poor saps to die for them.

            Most of them died or went broke supporting the revolution. I am probably replying to bait but some people actually believe that.

      France went all in on us, and went broke, then their entire country had their revolution which involved beheading anyone who had an opinion

      i don't think there's any particular agenda in it, it's just that the general cultural understanding of the war is very simplistic. lafayette gets his due in even basic hs versions of the history in my experience for example

    soldiers also carried weapons captured from the enemy in the field and reissued to Continental and state troops. A growing number of American manufacturers produced weapons on government contracts, as the domestic arms industry expanded to try to meet the demand, but they could not sustain the American troops through a long conflict.
    Despite American mythology the vast majority of locks and barrels were made in Europe. I actually own an original committee of public safety musket, it is basically a copy of a brown bess but it is assembled from a British barrel and lock. The funniest thing about the American war of Independence and the constitution etc is that Washington fought for slavery and the British fought against it. 5000 Black American slaves fought with the British to promised to end slavery in the United states. The American revolution was fought for slavery.

    As the war drew to a close and the British military prepared to evacuate New York City in November 1783, thousands of emancipated slaves requested to leave with them. For formerly enslaved men and women of color, the British government offered the best source of protection against potential re-enslavement by the victorious Americans. To their credit, British military officials chose to honor the promises of freedom offered to enslaved people and agreed to transport them to Nova Scotia. To facilitate the process, naval officers prepared an “Inspection Roll” to document those African men, women, and children who wished to join thousands of white loyalists in exile in British-controlled Canada. The three volumes that make up what is colloquially referred to as the “Book of Black folks” contains the names, brief physical descriptions, and places of origin for approximately 3,000 formerly enslaved people who left New York with the British in 1782. Of these, the vast majority came from the southern colonies.
