The American Revolution took place during 1775 and lasted until 1783. The American Revolution is also known as the American Revolutionary War and the U.S. War of Independence. John Locke is a very important person that stands out in this Revolution. He fought for the contractual theory of government. Conflicts of this time arose from growing tensions between residents of Great Britain's 13 North American colonies and the colonial government, which represented the British crown.

The American Revolution was the political upheaval during the last half of the 18th century in which thirteen colonies in North America joined together to break free from the British Empire, combining to become the United States of America. While no one event can be pointed to as the actual cause of the revolution, the war began as a disagreement over the way in which Great Britain treated the colonies versus the way the colonies felt they should be treated. Americans felt they deserved all the rights of Englishmen. The British, on the other hand, felt that the colonies were created to be used in the way that best suited the crown and parliament. This conflict is embodied in one of the rallying cries of the American Revolution: “No Taxation Without Representation.” And similar to such a cry, is the statement, “The demand for no taxation without representation was the primary force motivating the American Revolutionary movement, and for many it became a symbol of democracy;” ultimately saying that the American Revolution, as well as the colonist’s rage towards Britain, grew out of increasing, continuous restrictions placed upon the colonies by the British.

Rough Copy In 1775, the American Revolutionary War began, as the American Colonies wanted to achieve independence from the British Monarchy. Even though many reasons were sighted out for the revolution, one in particular sticks out. King George III outlawed the interest free independent currency the thirteen colonies were producing and using themselves. This in turn forced the colonies to borrow money from the Central Bank of England, which put the colonies into immediate debt. The Federal Reserve Bank was alleged to be a step towards the “One World Government”, simply by manipulating the international monetary system and the media in order to create a monopoly.
The British had dominated the French and Indian War and with them out of the way, England could turn its attention to its control over the colonies. They needed money from the debts the war brought, and they looked to the colonies for it. This meant the colonists
Although British had the victorious win, fighting this war was very expensive. The British wished to cover the cost of the war. The British believed that as they had made America secure and safe, the Americans should bear some of the costs of achieving this security. As a result of this, they enforced Navigation Act and the costs associated with the two new taxes led to protests. A newly-formed Stamp Act Congress formed by delegates from nine colonies objected the British ideas based on the principle of “no taxation without representation.” This was the
The year 1763 was marked as a turning point in American History. The war between France and Britain for Colonial dominance in North America had ended. The British now controlled all of the lands discovered in North America but now had the large problem of developing an Imperial program for the much bigger empire. Britain would soon come to learn that the new colonies could determine their own destiny. The colonies had become a melting pot as more and more immigrants came to find a new life in America.
