Revolution: “the usually violent attempt by many people to end the rule of one government and start a new one” (Merriam-Webster). In the late 1770’s and early 1780’s, the British colonies in North America made the decision to rebel and cut all ties with their British government. In the war that happened due to this decision, the Revolutionary War, the colonies were able to beat the British government and declare their independence because of many heroes and leaders. Three of these heroes and leaders were Thomas Jefferson, John Hancock, and George Washington.
