    I'm not too sure I don't really pay close attention to the Revolutionary War.

    England? How dare you even speak the word England?

    Are you a king with an army?

    Crazy. Man does nothing and is nothing. All men working together are less than that flea in you hair to this planet and to God?

    God notices man when God wishes not on man's demand.

    Pee on your neighbors walk you neighbors notice piss all you want in front of God until it drowns you. Is God even there?

    Pre Rome England formed here around the great lakes iron mines.

    We sold iron to the Romans and taught them to make steel.

    The British isles were our first colonies in Europe, be sure those from the British isles kneel well and serve you well.

    They are slavish.

    Largely through royal governors, one for each colony (such as New York, North Carolina, etc.) The royal governors, appointed by the King, would set policy for each colony based on general instructions provided by the King and by Parliament. They were backed up by a small number of staff members, by courts following British laws, by British troops garrisoned in each colony, and by a legislature elected by the citizens of each colony (such as the Virginia House of Burgesses). Members of the legislature had to be white, male, landowners, and Christian.

    With such a structure, it didn't matter that instructions from London took several weeks to arrive.

    There are a lot of interesting answers but none of them mentions that the British had a relatively strong presence of trained uniformed military troops in the Colonies. When the Boston Tea Party took place to punish the colony for its provocative act Britain’s principal action was to close Boston Harbor until the tea had been paid for. England also installed Gen. Thomas Gage, commander of the British Army in America, as governor of the colony.

    The relationship between England and her America colonies was peaceful and symbiotic for dozens of yrs. The relationship began to sour f/ the residual effects of the 7 yrs. War.

    The contribution of navy in any military conflict is limited. If you'd like to elaborate on your inquiry I would be better suited to help.

    They didn't rule, they colonized us. Then our forefathers rose up and knocked their wooden dentures out.
