Just this goy...

Okay, can someone explain this for me?

The naval Battle of Cape St Vincent, or Battle of Cape Santa Maria, took place on 16 January 1780, during the American Revolutionary War and was a victory of a British fleet under Admiral Sir George Rodney over a Spanish squadron under Don Juan de Lángara.Wikipedia

The thing I'm wondering is about the green text... in what way is it relevant to this specific battle that the north american colonies were revolting? Wouldn't it be far more important to mention that Britain was currently at war with France as well as Spain?
