The American Revolutionary War was first sparked by British troops attempt to remove firearms from colonists in Concord, Massachusetts in 1775. This event at Lexington was the first of the American Revolutionary War. The relationship between Great Britain and the colonists had already been filled with conflict and ill feelings. The colonists felt the treatment they were receiving from Great Britain was in violation of their rights. This discontent was displayed as early as 1773 when colonist boarded a British ship docked at the Boston harbor carrying a shipment of tea. They were fed up with “taxation without representation”. So they dumped all of the tea into the harbor calling the even The Boston Tea Party.
All these events would lead to the signing of the Declaration of Independence. In it, America declared its independence from Great Britain. In 1776, General George Washington sailed across the Delaware River to engage the British in the first formal battle of the war. It was in the cities of Trenton and Princeton the British Garrisons were defeated.
This was however the first of many war breakouts that would occur over the course of the revolution. It was to the colonists’ advantage that although the British controlled the larger states of New York and Pennsylvania, the colonist controlled the rest of territories.
The newly declared United States of America would later join forces with France as allies. After agreeing to a trade and commerce pact, the King of France, Louis XVI, would declare war on Great Britain on behalf of America. This act would cause the British Empire to seriously consider the inevitable outcome of the war.
In 1783, 8 years after the war started, the British House of Commons voted to end the war. They removed their final soldiers from South Carolina and Georgia marking the end of the American Revolutionary War. In Paris, France that same year, the British would sign the Treaty of Paris officially ending the war once and for all.
