The American Revolution
1. Summary
The American Revolution took place between 1775 and 17831. The war involved the Great
Britain’s colonies and Britain itself. The genesis of the American Revolution was the Britain’s
attempt to impose restrictions to its colonies in North America. The two groups had agreed on
the salutary neglect policy. However, the British took advantage of the scenario and started
exercising more powers against the colonies. When the war began in 1778, it was a civil war
taking place around the British Empire. Consequently, as the days gone by the war translated to
an international conflict. Many other nations joined the fight. For instance, France entered the
war in 1778, and Spain found its way to the battle in the following year2. There are other
countries such as the Netherlands, which supported the British colonies. Netherland too found
itself fighting against Britain. However, the forces against Britain were many which forced it to
surrender in Yorktown. Its colonies formed the United States of America.
2. Analysis
The American Revolution was a war of interest3. Several countries had united to fight a common
enemy, Britain. After Britain had colonized the countries in North America, it controlled
everything that those countries would do. However, the action did not go well with the nations.
