ABSTRACT
British colonies in North America had been protesting against partial British laws. Continental congresses were held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to prepare for the war for independence which broke out in 1776. Britain won many battles but Americans won strategically important victories and also earned the support of France in 1778. By this time, British had failed in the northern colonies and turned their attention to the South.
