Did you know Tipu Sultan funded American War of Independence?

Did you know Tipu Sultan funded Americans during their struggle for Independence from the British colonialists? He also sent a letter to Mr. Benjamin Franklin, one of the Founding Fathers of US, along with monetary contributions, in response to Americans’ advertisement in a French newspaper for funding.

He writes, “every blow that is struck in the cause of American liberty throughout the world, in France, India, and elsewhere and so long as a single insolent savage tyrant remains the struggle shall continue.”
