Everyone knows about the French involvement during the American Revolution, but few know about the Spanish involvement. Spain proved to be a major help during America's fight for independence, and few individuals did more than the great Spaniard Bernardo de Galvez. It is time to give Spain and de Galvez the credit they deserve for helping the colonists defeat the British Empire.
