Yes, the Revolutionary War did cause a big change for some people’s daily lives in America, and yes, the 13 colonies did separate from Great Britain and become an independent nation, but for many, the war had little or no effect on their lives and rights.

At the bottom of the poster, it said, “Which can you do without?” The government issued the same number of coupons for children and adult clothing, but the children 's clothing cost fewer coupons because children grow fast and treat their clothes to rough wear. The war disrupted people’s lives from their daily routines, the food they prepared, and to the clothes they wore.
