After Tug of War:
Blue Team: The blue team were the weak Americans who looked like they had no chance to win. They were basically the big underdogs of this.
Red Team: The red team is the British army and their soldiers that were expected to win by a landslide. They had more troops, the troops were better trained, and their guns were easier to handle.
White Team: The white team are the people who came in to help a side. An example for America is France, Indians, and Spain. An example for Britain are the German Hessians.
Prizes: ( for winning the war )
Britain: There was no prize for Britain at all because they already owned the Americas and the were just stopping the Americans from taking Independence.
America: Their prize was being free from Britain and not being controlled by them. But that was what they were fighting for.
They won the war because they were brave and bold against Britain, and they fought decent. Plus, they had all these countries helping them like France, Indians, Slaves, and Spain.
