    Incompetent my ass. He took on the world's premier army and not only defeated them repeatedly, he also kept the rebellion a going concern even through the defeats--- which are far harder for a rebellion to survive. The rebels proved at Saratoga they could beat the British in stand up warfare as well as in irregular warfare.

    These were not professionals; they were largely militamen. They still inflicted enough casualties to win battles.

    Actually you can, but that doesnt mean you will automatically be granted status as a refugee.
