he Revolutionary War began with the battles of Lexington and Concord in 1775. Soon after, the Americans took Fort Ticonderoga, New York. In Boston, the British won a costly victory at Bunker Hill [Breeds Hill]. By the end of the year, the Continental Army attempted a two-pronged invasion of Canada. This move ended with a failed attack on Quebec. General Washington forced the British out of Boston in March 1776 with siege guns moved from Fort Ticonderoga. In 1777, a heavily contested British campaign to converge on Albany was stopped at Fort Stanwix and soundly defeated at Bennington and Saratoga.
