Appendix CHIS/115 Version 31Associate Level MaterialAppendix COutcomes of the RevolutionPart 1Completethe grid by describing each military event and explaining its relationship to the outcome of the Revolutionary War.MilitaryEventDescriptionRelationship to the Outcome of the Revolutionary WarConcord and LexingtonThis battle was the first battle that Americans killed British soldiers (Schultz, 2012). There were only 95 American casualties compared to 273 on the British side (Schultz, 2012). This was the first time Americans had killed British soldiers (Schultz, 2012). This gave the Americans more confidence so when the British did not back off, the Americans were ready to fight. Fort TiconderogaThis fort belonged to the British and the Americans seized it and Crown Point (Schultz, 2012). This led to the outcome of the Revolutionary War because it used to belong to the British but the Americans seized it. The more land they seized, the less the British could use. Second Continental CongressThe Second Continental Congress consisted of delegates from the 13 colonies that began meeting in the summer of 1775 (Schultz, 2012). They were responsible for managing the war effort, raising armies, making the treaties, and acting as the government of the United States (Schultz, 2012).
