Welcome to the American revolutionary war WikiEdit

The American Revolutionary War, also known as the American Revolution, or American War of Independence, was a revolutionary conflict lasting from 1775 to 1783, between the Continental Army consisting of American Patriots and Great Britain. It broke out as a social uprising against British authority over the Thirteen Colonies, and then spread globally when the French joined on the sides of the Patriots. It resulted in the end of British colonial rule over America and the establishment of the United States of America.

The revolution broke out as a result of unfair British authorization of its American colonies, after the British won the French and Indian War. They imposed a series of policies aiming to heavily tax the Amercican colonies without representation. Americans were outraged with the unfair treatment given to them, and protests broke out in Boston. British troops were sent to crush the rebellion, but escalated into warfare. The militias mobilized and in July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was signed declaring America's breakaway from the British Empire.
