During the events of the war, Great Britain had signed treaties with several German states that supplied the British armies with more than 30,000 soldiers. In 1776, King George hire soldiers from Germany called Hessians. The British paid the Prince of Hessen $500, 000 a year plus $35 for each Hessian killed and $12 for each wounded. Unsuccessfully the money was not given to the soldiers. It was spent to help Germany's economy and even build exquisite palaces. To overwhelm the North American troops, the Germans made up about one-third of the British troops. Compared to other German states, the Hessen-Kassel had contributed more

The German Hessians

soldiers and because of this the German soldiers came to be known as the “Hessians” to the Americans. The rebel advocates called the German soldiers as “foreign mercenaries”. Because of that, the German soldiers were rejected in the Declaration of Independence. In 1779, the number of British and German troops stationed in North America grew to over 60,000. The troops were scattered from Canada to Florida. There are about 10,000 Loyalist Americans included in this figure who are under arms for the British.

The French Involvement

In 1775, revolutionaries had gained control of the thirteen colonial governments. They set up the Second Continental Congress and formed a Continental Army. Petitions to the king to negotiate with parliament on their behalf resulted in being declared as traitors by the Congress. That following year, the Americans responded formally by declaring their independence as the United States of America. They claimed sovereignty and denied any allegiance with the British monarchy. In 1777, the Continentals captured a British army which resulted that France had to enter the war on the side of the Americans. Over the next two years, Spain and the Dutch Republic also went to war with Britain as French allies. Throughout the war, the British had used their navigational control in capturing and occupying coastal cities. The French involvement proved to be determined. In 1781, a French nautical victory takes place in Chesapeake that resulted to the surrender of the second British army in Yorktown. In 1783, the Treaty of Paris had ended the war and recognized the sovereignty of the United States over the territory bounded by what is currently Canada to the north, Florida to the south, and the Mississippi River to the west.
