Research Technologies: Road to Independence Empire Total War

WholemealBeanWholemealBean Registered Users Posts: 1
I'm playing the Road to Independence campaign in Empire Total War and can't see a way to upgrade or research any technologies. I've seen videos where they have canister shot in their canon for example? My cannon only fire round shot. My troops cannot fire by rank either - is there somewhere that ca be captured that enable upgrading of technologies? Any help appreciated.

    The first three parts of the Road are basically a learning process for new folks. You won't get into any of the things like Research or Diplomacy until you play Part four, or get into the regular faction campaigns.
