Please post again with your answer, or a clarification of your question.

I know what geography is. I do not see how geography contributed to the revolt of the Patriots against Britain in the Revolutionary War.

The colonies were a couple thousand miles away from Britain -- thus making it easier for them to declare independence and more difficult for the British to fight them. The "home team" always has the advantage by fighting on its own land. In addition, the colonies occupied a large area, again making it difficult for Britain to fight the local militias in the colonies.
