Answer For independence, the right of the people to rule rather than be controlled by a foreign power. If you read the Bill of rights you will understand why.
Some Americans, called Loyalists wanted to remain loyal to the British king but others, called Patriots were against the king so they had a war.
This question is a debate that historians debate a great deal and the answers can be very open ended based on what your perspective. Answer 1 On the one hand, Americans greatly associated themselves with the British Empire until about 1775. They didn't openly seek separation until the Revolutio…nary War was underway for about a year. Thomas Paine wrote Common Sense as a way to convince people that they is a direct contradiction between fighting a war of this magnitude and still wanting to be under British Rule after. Reception from this book in addition to constant demands from people like John Adams made this become a secession from the British Empire. Answer 2 The American Revolution is, in my view, wholly misnamed and incorrectly categorized. It is not a revolution by the standards set by other political revolts and revolutions like the French Revolution, the Russian Revolution, the Glorious Revolution, the Portuguese Revolt, the Sikh Revolt against the Mughal Empire, and many others. In those wars, a particular power or authority was removed (or attempts were made to remove that authority) with the intent to create a new style of government to rule the new territory and upset the previous power balance. These revolutions, when successful, often result in Reigns of Terror or campaigns to remove members of the Ancient Regime. The American Revolution left most of the colonial governments intact, just delegating to them new directed authority. There was no major purge of loyalists nor any attempt to remove former British officials and nobility in the colonies from their positions. If anything the American Revolution was a secessionist war or an independence struggle, much more akin to Mexican War of Independence and other similar post-colonial struggles for independence where the majority group in the colony was European or quasi-European (like most of Latin American and some southern African countries).

After defeating France, and her Indian allies, in the Seven Year'sWar (1754-1763), or the "French and Indian War" as it was called incolonial America, Great Britain, as a result of the costly victory,was in deep debt. The British government, reasoning that the warwas necessary to evict the French fr…om British North America,looked to the American colonists to help pay a very small part ofthe incurred debt. The British Parliament in London, where Americancolonists were only "virtually represented," as the Britishgovernment would style it, passed several taxes upon British goodspurchased in the colonies. American colonists deeply resented thesetaxes, which they felt were passed without their consent, hence theexpression "no taxation without representation." Eventually, alltaxes were repealed by Parliament, save one, the tax on teaentering the colonies. With three British cargo vessels docked in Boston waiting to unloadtheir cargo of tea, the Patriot colonists struck first, destroyingthe hated cargo in the "Boston Tea Party." As punishment for thisbrazen act of defiance against the British Crown, Parliament passedseveral acts, known collectively as The Intolerable Acts" in thecolonies, focused primarily upon Boston. The punishment of Bostonby the Crown, attempting to exert its dominance over the coloniesand make an "example" of Boston, to keep other colonies "in line,"had the opposite, unintended effect of rallying other colonies toMassachusetts side. After hostilities erupted at Lexington andConcord, Massachusetts in April of 1775 and subsequent battles, theSecond Continental Congress voted to declare independence fromGreat Britain.

The American Revolution is a revolution The Revolutionary War is part of the American Revolution
Yes it was, the American Revolution is what made America, if there wasn't an American Revolution, we would still be ruled by Britain, we wouldn't be a free country . This also has to do with the pilgrims too!
As with any army in any war there were multiple leaders. The military hierarchy was about this: George Washington>Horatio Gates, Henry Knox>Benedict Arnold (His position in this hierarchy caused his betrayel), Baron Freidrich von Steuben>multiple brigadier generals>John Paul Jones, Ethan Allen, and …Henry Morgan. However, this can be misleading. Henry Morgan and Baron von Steuben contributed drastically to the American cause and reformed the Continental army in ways that leveled it with and gave it enormous advantages over the British.

The American Revolution was not a complete revolution. TheAmerican's felt oppressed by British Imperial rule. A good way todescribe this is "taxation without representation", the Americanswere forced to pay taxes by the British in order to increaseBritish revenue. Some of the taxes include the Stamp… Act, the SugarAct, the Currency Act and the Intolerable Acts, all of which weremade American's angry with British rule. These were some of thelong term and short term causes of the revolution, the American'swanted a new political system which would steer away frommonarchies, rule of the few over the many and established churches.They feared oppressive governments and after the revolution wasover, established a democratic system which would decrease thepower of the government. Free trade and basic human freedoms wereestablished. Despite there being a lot of political reform, therewas not enough societal reform to label it a traditionalrevolution. The political power was still in the hands of thewealthy, white, Anglo-Saxon men. The equality that was talked aboutduring the revolution did not apply to women and persons of color.Thus racism, sexism and slavery were abundant for centuries tocome. Furthermore, the revolution reinfroced the class divisionswithin American society and thus made it no different from what washappening before the revolution. Finally, the Americans werefighting in order to separate from Britain and create their ownpolitical system, not change the British system. This shows that itwas a War of Independence rather than only a revolutionary war. Inthe end it was both revolutionary and evolutionary. Some of thechanges they fought for did occur, but it was also a war with agoal of separation. Revealing that overall the American Revolutionwas not truly a traditional revolution. ( Full Answer )

Jobs that would generally be the same as careers during the colonial period in America, suck as whalers, farmers, ministers, mail carriers, etc. A job that might have only appeared during this time period would probably be a militiaman.
There were numerous American traitors during the AmericanRevolution. By far the most famous was Benedict Arnold.
Know your history, the first man to die in the American Revolution was a black man, Crispus Attucks. He was fighting on the front line. The National Archives and Records Administration has a series of records regarding the Negro in the American Military that dates back to 1639! So the fighting was n…ever left to "the white man" to do, even before this was a nation! Many African-Americans fought for the British during the American Revolution as the British promised them freedom if they did this. They also hated their white colonist masters. Around 5,000 African-Americans fought for the colonists and around 20,000 fought for the British; they even had their own regiments in the British Army. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ An additional comment on use of the term of 'African-American': ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The term of "African-American is an ETHNIC description used to describe "ONLY those people who .... are 'The-Descendants-of-T he-Survivors' of the targets of the chattel-slave system which took place on the continental United States during the antebellum era of the nations history." ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Because African-American (AA) is actually an ETHNIC grouping (as opposed to being a RACIAL grouping) -- there is NO "RACIAL QUALIFICATION" REQUIRED in order to or a person to be an AA. More than 70% of the AAs are of a Mixed-Race Lineage (which includes about 20-30% European and +25% Amerindian); about 25% of the AAs are of a full-Black lineage; and 5% of the AAs are found to have no traces of Black lineage in their ancestry whatsoever. One should never make the assumption that any person who is from the continent of Africa and who becomes an American citizen ---- can be an African-American, NOR that any African person living in the Americas is automatically an African-American. This is not how the term is used. African-American is an ETHNIC description used to describe ONLY those people who .... are the descendants of and can trace their ancestry back to the survivors of the targets of the chattel-slave system which took place on the continental U.S. during the antebellum era of the nations history. Most white people found in the continent of Africa did not have ancestors from the continental United States who were chattel-slaves during the antebellum era --- and therefore they aren't African-Americans. Much like actress Charlize Theron is a white person who was from South Africa then became an expatriate to the United States (and is said to have, since, become an American) is NOT a member of the very unique African-American (AA) Ethnic grouping (as AAs are an Ethnic group, not a Race group) -- but rather, Ms. Theron is 'a White American who is of 'South African' Ethnicity' (and is not a member of the very unique Ethnic grouping now called African-American) In addition, while a common history of 'slavery' can apply to a substantial majority of Americans who are categorized as "black" -- not every "black" person who grows up, lives or works in the United States is an African-American, either Some black people in America are immigrants, expatriates, tourists and students from the Black Diaspora -- and have no personal ties to the African-American ethnicity or related history. These people are often part of Ethnic group such as the Afro-Cubans, Jamaicans, New Zealanders, Maroons, British West Indians, etc. For instance, model Melyssa Ford, Runner Ben Johnson and singer Deborah Cox are all African-Canadians. They all work in the U.S., some live here. They are not African-Americans. Also, Barack Obama's father is from Kenya, his mother has Irish roots. Neither of his parents are "descendants-of-the-survivors" of the chattel-slavery system that took place on the continental United States during the antebellum era. Barack Obama can be described as either a 'Black' American or as a 'half-Black' American -- but he is not a member of the very unique African-American Ethnicity He does, however, seem to strongly identify with that particular Ethnic grouping of people; he has a good number of constituents who are of that Ethnicity; he has married into an African-American family and has children who are half African-American. But both Barack and his children have an east African Kenyan ancestry -- whereas his wife, Michelle's, "black" ancestry comes from West Africa. "African-American is an ETHNIC description used to describe ONLY those people who .... are the descendants of and can trace their ancestry back to the survivors of the targets of the chattel-slave system which took place on the continental United States during the antebellum era of the nations history."

A war. A revolution is the complete internal restrucuring of a society. A war is a contest carried out by force of arms. Americans fought a war of independance, they didn't restructure society like the french would in a few years.
In a revolution, a government is overthrown and replaced byanother. The "American Revolution" did overthrow a monarchy, Yes the American Revolution was a real revolution. If the AmericanRevolution had never taken place the United States would not existand would probably still be a colony of Great B…ritain. The American Revolution is called a revolution because it is thewar in which the original 13 colonies of the US decided to revoltagainst the British monarchy (this happened because of the hightaxes that the paid on imported goods). The American Revolution was a change in the way the governmentworked and for America to gain it's independence from GreatBritain. In fact it wasn't a true revolution. The reason being is that aTRUE revolution allows 1.Social, 2.Political, and 3. Economicchange to occur. Hence if you were to look at who benefited and what truly changedin Colonial America one can conclude that only politically wasthere change (they didn't answer to a king anymore - democracy wasinstated, also a constitution, congress, etc.) However in society nothing changed only the elite got more powerfulfor they drove the revolution forward and were put into a positionof more power after the revolution. i.e. there were still slaves, white men who owned land could onlyhave an impact on politics (voting), women had less power then men,the poor and middle class didn't get more powerful... etc. Economical nothing change either (no radical restructuring), sincethose in power after the revolution only lowered the high taxesthat the British had imposed on the country --Hence the economic system of capitalism remained in use frompre-revolution to post-revolution Therefor because only radical political change had occur because ofthe American revolution you can only truly say that it was only apartial revolution and not a true/full revolution. Yet even thoughits a partial revolution its still 'a revolution' but to whatdegree can still be debated. ( Full Answer )

Yes the American Revolution was a real revolution. If the American Revolution had never taken place the United States would not exist and would probably still be a colony of Great Britain. Yes, it was a real revolution, because the people being governed overthrew the government that was ruling them.… The reason for the overthrow was that the people who rebelled were dissatisfied with how they were being governed, felt they had no say in their government, felt the government didn't care about their welfare and that their plight was never going to get any better. These are the classic reasons for a rebellion. ( Full Answer )
This has been a long-debated question among scholars. For a long time, historians thought of the Revolution as a conservative affair, i.e., an attempt to preserve colonists' British liberties. Also, the idea of a "revolution" has been defined in terms of the French and Russian Revolutions. Both of w…hich sought to overturn the previous social order and resulted in significant violence. The American Revolution did not seek to overturn the established social order and did not result in significant internal violence. Hence, the American Revolution was not seen as radical, i.e., a genuine revolution. In 1992, Gordon S. Wood argued that the Revolution was indeed radical in that it was part of a long process of the redefinition of social relations (as opposed to the social order). ( Full Answer )
None. The American Revolution was inspired by various poets-Aristotle, Thomas Hobbes, and John Locke, John Locke being the most famous. These poets had written of the Laws of Nature-"that they are endowed by their creator with certain, unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the P…ursuit of Happiness." The Declaration of Independence often mentioned these "unalienable rights", for Jefferson did not want to mention specific religions. "...and to assume among the powers of the earth the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's god entitles them." Is one example. By: Notty 129 ( Full Answer )

The American Revolution occurred during the end of 18th Century between the 13 colonies and Britain. The American Revolution was called the American Revolution because of the fact that at the time the United States was under the power of British Parliament, up until the American Revolution when the …United States took power and received independence through the American Revolutionary War. Britain still did not give American full independence until the War of 1812. This is not the answer to the question. The question was what was the origin/first use of the term 'revolution' in the context of the American war of independence.

... or simply an Independence movement? A revolution is usually taken to mean a complete change in the system of government; from a monarchy to a republic, as in the French example, or from one sort of monarchy (absolute) to another (constitutional) as in England. By this criterion, it was a revol…ution. George III was King of the American colonies, and they kicked him out and set up a republic. Probably, on balance and in hindsight, a mistake, but there you go, they will do these things. ( Full Answer )

America would be ruled by England, kidda like Canada, the french would probably not had their revolution and America wouldn't have been a world power.
