Very interesting to see how many of this forum's users are pinko-hippy-peaceniks. Voted for all but Vietnam, 1812, and 2 or 3 others. That so many voted against World War II and the Civil war is disgusting. Also, I wonder how many of those who voted against the revolution are Americans.

I voted against and I'm British Wink

u mad we won? Tongue

*Lost every battle but won the war Wink

Every battle? You, sir, do not know your history. Observe:



Bunker Hill, the very definition of Pyrrhic victory

Cowpens, a decisive event in the reconquest of South Carolina

Trenton, American victory that was a major morale boost

Saratoga, American victory, defeat of British plan to split off New England

Ft. Sacksville, in which the Americans took control of much of the West

Yorktown

Surrender of Cornwallis
