Am. Rev.

The American Revolution started in 1775 and ended in 1783. It took place throughout the 13 colonies and other locations throughout the years of the war. Most political revolutions begin over a poor or corrupt government. However, this revolutionary war didn’t start over a particular event, but it did revolve around the government. At the end it brought ideology and political changes.

The American Revolution began as an disagreement between the 13 colonies and Great Britain.The 13 Colonies were upset about the lack of representation they got from parliament, and the over taxing. The colonies felt they should be treated differently from what they were being treated at the time. The Americans thought they deserved all the rights of an englishman, while the british felt the colonies were created to be used in the best way to suit the parliament.

Overall this Revolution brought both political and ideology changes at the end of it. The Revolution ended in 1783 with the paris treaty. On July 4, 1776 American colonists declared independence, it created a modern United States. This became a symbol of freedom to other places like Europe and Latin America, based on Enlightenment ideas. Later the United States Constitution became a representation for liberal government. This Revolution’s result gave other the courage to rebel against their governments as well.
