What was the most important factor in us winning the war?

The most common belief is that guerrilla type tactics was the cause that the British lost the war, but that is wrong. It was the slow wearing down of the resolve to win and Washington building an army that could go toe to toe and win against the British. Also, Washington's Army controlled the country side and the supplies. It became to costly for the British to continually to supply an army across the Atlantic. The British could win the cities and ports, but when they went into the countryside they would be beaten. You can not win a war without having the resolve to take the fight to the enemy and take their supplies and make their army hungry. The British were never really able to do that. They could slow down the supplies, but never stop them.
