    I think the sacrifices made in the Revolutionary War I believe helped truly shape the nation. I think if we provided the North with modern weapons, the war may have never really materialized and fewer Americans would have to die for a pointless fight.

      If they had modern weapons in the revolutionary war, they would have modern weapons in the civil war... cause that's how time works.

      @Baddie. True, but then both the North and the South would have modern weapons, resulting in more American's dead and a possible situation where the South wins or worse, the country stays divided.

      Giving Americans modern weapons in the revolutionary war would by far decrease American deaths. BECAUSE they would have used them against British not fellow Americans!

      @theTexan there were about 1/3 of the colonists who were something called a 'loyalist'...which means they still would have been used against Americans.

      both wars were for the same reason, the question is more would you like America to be British/Not have been babysat by the French or not change anything/keep the confederacy

      Notice how it says OF the Revolutionary war, so it could be referring to bringing Revolutionary war weapons back from that time period.

      i would sell them to both sides but at a discount to the north and then watch the south get mad and attack me but i would have kept the tanks for myself and ripped them apart. that would be the ultimate monopoly.

      Ah, but if we bring modern weapons to either, today those weapons still would have been considered "old" because our weapons would have been more advanced. So, are we TRULY bringing modern weapons?

      Actually, Tobias, the world's first actual computer was the german Z3 (1941), and the world's first programmable computer was the Colossus invented by the British (1943), the ENIAC, made by the Americans in 1946, was the first general-purpose computer, but it wasn't the first computer overall. Fun fact: Ada Lovelace, a British woman of the 1800s, is considered to have written the first computer programme. I hope I've helped clear up this argument without causing a shitstorm

      I could never allow more american casualties in the war that had the most casualties ever, and if u think vietnam had the most casualties or Iraq, d-day (last battle of world war 2) had 3 times more in 3 months, compared to 3-7 years of war

    I'd only give weapons to America to speed up the revolution, which also caused Napoleons rise, which caused Prussia to found the German Empire. I love the original Kingdom of Prussia and German Empire.

    Lincoln was actually an evil tyrant so bring modern weapons to the south, plus Scarlett O'Hara was from the south (yes i know she was fake), the south was actually had all the right to leave look it up in the Constitution. The war want even about slaves at all Lincoln used that to gain moral for the North and to cover up that he was a tyrant. Whew that was a mouthful and if you dont belive me read the book "The Real Lincoln" You are all welcome to the truth.Also he said that if he could win the war with out freeing any slaves he would. now good by :)

    The description is vague, but I would so arm the British in the revolutionary war, even though, it is a possibility that WWI would be a German victory and, even if the Brits won WWI, WWII would possibly be won on the western front because it was the Americans supporting the British during the Nazi campaign against Great Britain and in other campaigns even before American boots were on the ground, but If I chose the civil war it is also possible that the south could salvage these weapons, leading to a longer, more drawn out civil war, possibly leading to the Americans being too busy with a standstill on their own soil to be bothered to help out the British in Europe.

    I honestly just think it'd make history classes much more interesting. The British just show up to battle, and then get demolished by machine guns, bazookas, and then just imagine how easily we could fuck up their ships.

      Bazookas are not modern. RPGs are. I'm just wondering how they would even know what the hell a plane was. If they could manage to get anything working, they would probably misuse nuclear weapons, too. So many reasons not to introduce modern weapons to history. Chose one just to comment.

    If they had modern modern weapons in the revolutionary war, think of all the advancements they could make with their weapons by the time the civil war started! Then, after that our "modern weapons" would be like, plasma rifles, laser guns, remote control bullets, think of all the possibilities!
