Appendix C HIS/115 Version 3 1 Associate Level Material Appendix C Outcomes of the Revolution Part 1 Complete the grid by describing each military event and explaining its relationship to the outcome of the Revolutionary War. Military Event Description Relationship to the Outcome of the Revolutionary War Concord and Lexington The battles at Concord and Lexington were the sites of the first military engagement in the Revolutionary War. This first bloodshed marked a crossing in the proverbial line in the sand. It drove both parties further apart, and intensified their resolve to intensify the fight. Fort Ticonderoga For Ticonderoga was a rarely used, poorly manned fort in upstate New York, nearly forgotten after the French and Indian war. It was taken by Benedict Arnold, and Ethan Allen along with a group of colonial militia members to commandeer cannons and other munitions. The cannons captured during that battle were transported to and used in Boston, where they forced the British soldiers to abandon the city. Second Continental Congress A group of delegates from the Thirteen Colonies that began meeting after the beginning of the Revolutionary War. The Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence and began acting as the government for the country in its infancy. The Congress recruited, and raised an army, decided military strategy, and even appointed some of the diplomats, strengthening its position of independence. Bunker Hill Bunker Hill & Breed’s Hill were two targets both the British and Colonists wanted to siege and conquer. Doing so would gain control over the adjacent Boston Harbor. The battle for Bunker Hill was fought on June 17, 1775.
