The American Patriots fighting for independence during the Revolutionary War had several key advantages over their English opponents. Knowledge of local terrain was one. Willingness to engage in innovative (and quite effective) battle-tactics was another. Finally, they were fighting for their homeland, while the soldiers opposing them were not.

They were fighting on their own turf. It was do or die for them. Also they had superior generals and a cause to fight for. Furthermore, while they didn't have as many guns, those they did have were rifles, which were much more accurate than the smoothbores of England.
