Blows Must Decide - American Colonies Rebel

Britain has successfully fought a very costly war in the American colonies - the French and Indian War - but now the Americans are rebelling against their mother country.  People in England see this as a betrayal.

Although not all the colonists agree that a revolt against Britain is in the best interests of all the colonies, the Continental Congress moves forward to break the ties with Britian. 

George Washington (a Virginian) is appointed Commander-in-Chief to lead an "army" of men who are (at least initially) from Massachusetts.  Blows, between the mother country and her colonies, must now decide the future of America.
