Beschrijving The struggle for American independence constituted a new form of conflict, in which the issue was political as well as economic. Widespread opposition to British rule made it impossible for the occupying armies to hold more than small pockets of territory, inevitably on the coast where they could be supported and supplied by the Navy. This made seapower the key to the war. To many in Britain, America was wild and largely unknown which led to an active market for maps and images of the places and battles. The educated classes followed campaigns through prints and illustrated magazines. In time, paintings and engravings were produced which were based on sketches done on the spot, while many of the actual combatants kept illustrated journals.
