What was one of the keys to the American gaining their independence was?
Umm.. the french/ spanish help... all the battles and turning points... the political cartoons and the engraving of the boston massacre...
Treaty of Paris Ends the Spanish American WarThe Treaty of Paris officially ended the Spanish American War in 1898. The war had lasted six months. The treaty resulted in Puerto Rico and Guam falling under American control, Cuba gaining its independence, and America controlling the Philippines in exchange for 20 million dollars.
The Declaration of Independence could be described in may ways. There is no "best" one. It was a statement of American existence It was a statement of American identity It was, and still is a statement of American hope for the country and for the people. And, of course, it can be described as a statement of American independence - the very reason for the existence of the document.
Independence Day has been celebrated by the American people since July 4, 1776, with the signing of the Declaration of Independence from Great Britain and the Crown. No one individual started it, although John Adams had written in a letter to his wife Abigail that it would become the most celebrated day in American history.
Not really. Australia Day celebrates the day European settlers arrived in the continent and colonised "New South Wales". Independence Day is an American celebration which celebrates their independence from Great Britain. There is one vague, tenuous link: if American had not declared its independence when it did, it would not have made the issue of finding a new "dumping ground" for convicts so urgent.
