Is the American Revolution a modern revolution?

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 which 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).
