What hardships did the colonists encounter?
Just so, what hardships did the Americans endure during the war?

Also Know, what was life like for colonists? *Many settlers came to America establish colonies where they had religious freedom. *When the colonists arrived in America, life was very difficult. They had to clear the land using hand tools, build their own houses, produce all of their own food, and make their own clothing. *Family life was extremely important.
Also to know is, what in your opinion was the biggest challenge faced by the colonists?
Food shortages, disease and illness, establishing relations with the native Powhatan Indians and the lack of skilled labor were the pri- mary problems the early settlers faced.
What disadvantages did the Americans have in the Revolutionary War?
The British fought a war far from home. Military orders, troops, and supplies sometimes took months to reach their destinations. Despite occupying every major city, the British remained as at a disadvantage. Americans had a grand cause: fighting for their rights, their independence and their liberty.
