On the surface, the American colonists appeared to be no match for the British soldiers, but the local forces did enjoy some advantages:

  • a familiarity with the terrain
  • the support from local populations*
  • short supply lines
  • potentially sufficient numbers of soldiers.

However, the British had what appeared to many to be overwhelming advantages, including:

  • the availability of highly trained professional soldiers
  • the world's most powerful navy
  • the financial and material resources of the massive British empire.

*Historians have speculated that American public opinion was fairly evenly divided at the beginning of the War with one-third actively committed to the patriot cause, one-third strongly bonded to Britain as loyalists, and one-third uncommitted and more concerned about their farms or shops than politics.
