That's pretty much what happened.

Well, except for the fact that the British could re-load three times every minute for America's once a minute and a half.

Very funny.

Can't believe how juvenile some of the comments on it were, though (from both sides of the argument!)

since the british walked in formations even down the country roads and stuff, the americans came out of the trees shoot a bit then ran back for cover, basic hit-and-run i guess that americans laid the foundations for drive-bys

Sooo..speaking from my little bit of History class..
The Biritish really DID fight in lines? With rules and all that? For REALS? It's not a freshman prank?

I'm playing, I'm not that ignorant. :D
I just find it really funny.

Ahahaha… Yeah.. That's good comedy for kids ^^

As for fighting in lines… Come on guys, you Yanks still did that all the way into your civil war! Yeah… No, if you want better reasons why the British withdrew from those American states that they did withdraw from, it would be the fact that they couldn't really afford to extend themselves much longer in that conflict. You have to remember that they still retained much of North America (Canada), plus they had to contend with much larger, better armed, more direct threats in the forms of France and Spain, not to mention the French and Spanish in North and South America at the time as well, and there were also other colonies to hold on to in places like India, and then there were the constant rebellions in Ireland… A lot of the English troops in North America were actually German mercenaries- that tells you how expensive the war was for them as well as how terribly overextended they were.

Ah well, it's just one of those things; because the USA is such a massive state now, people tend to look on the history of the conflict of the American war of independence as if it was a battle of equals but in reality it was more complicated and muddy… But I'd say that US has a lot to thank Spain and France for really.
