In 1775 the conflict had been underway between the existing 13 British Colonies in North America and their homeland, Great Britain. In the first part of the 1700’s the population in the colonies was reported to be roughly 250,000 people. From the year 1770, this number had escalated to 2.5 million. This increase in population included the inhabitants shifting into a higher percentage of different immigrants including groups from Ireland, Scotland, and Germany who tended to settle in their teams along the field of the Atlantic shores. This growth has been the key to launching the colonies into a successful bid to get his or her liberty.
