American Revolution

The American Revolutionary War (1775-1783), the American War of Independence, or simply the Revolutionary War, began as a war between the Kingdom of Great Britain and American colonists. It gradually grew into a world war between Britain on one side and the United States, France, Netherlands and Spain on the other. The main result was an American victory, with mixed results for the other powers.
