The Revolutionary War, or American Revolution, is also known as the war of independence. It was fought between American colonies and the British colonial power. Britain was forcing their political ideas on the colonial subjects and they wanted to lead their own lives with their own government.
The war followed a quick trajectory and by July 4, 1776, Thomas Jefferson's Declaration of Independence was ratified by Congress. Later that month, a large number of British forces arrived in an attempt to crush the rebellion. However, the new Americans fought back and, by 1778, the French had signed a treaty of alliance with the new U.S. This led the American Revolution into a world war territory. A peace treaty was signed between the U.S. and Great Britain in 1783.
