    1. 1775-1783. Victory on the Battlefield was achieved in 1781.

    2. This is tough. Without cheating and looking it up, I'll go with the Battle of Yorktown. :o

    3. I know Thomas Paine was influential in both wars but I don't think he was sentenced to death, was he?)

    4. Both John Adams and Thomas Jefferson died. ( I know for a fact they both died on the Fourth of July, just can't remember if it was 1826.)

    5. Andrew Jackson?

    Bonus: I should know this but I'll guess the dutch.
