The American Revolution affected the world in several ways.

First, it surprised the world that such a small amount of people

would revolt against the grandest army in the world. Then, it was a

financial "burden" of sorts to other countries who sided with the

colonies (like the French). It was also a major influence on other

places where revolts occurred (for example, the French Revolution,

the Haitian Slave Rebellion, etc.).
