They would do this with a three-pronged attack.

At the beginning of the war, there was not a regular American army like we have today, just a militia made up of civilians, most of which were farmers. So naturally, they were not used to the long battles with the British Regulars. As a result thousands quit. What signaled the beginning of the American Revolution was the first battle on April 19, 1775 at Lexington. General Gage was in charge…
